Django Reinhardt - Cou-cou tab


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Cou-cou - Django Reinhardt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Maxwell

Tuning:Standard EADGBe


This being Django Reinhardt, and thus incredibly technical and difficult to tab by ear, 
just made up my own solo to it.

The solo I made is the same basic melody as the vocals in the song but you can augment 
in anyway of course, that's in the spirit of jazz and Django anyway.

Throughout the song you can play the vocals on your guitar (unless you can sing in 
of course). this is how I play it:

Okay now that you know the basic melody of the song you are free to embellish to your 
content and Django it up.


This song is in the scale of C major.

C major scale:
e|--E--|--F--|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|--C--|-----|--D--|
B|--B--|--C--|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|--F--|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|
G|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|--C--|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|--F--|
D|--D--|-----|--E--|--F--|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|--C--|
A|--A--|-----|--B--|--C--|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|--F--|-----|--G--|
E|--E--|--F--|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|--C--|-----|--D--|
    0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9     10


Okay I made a model to show you the C major scale. By the way what appears to be the 
fret is actually the nut as you can see by the zero.
