I was watching this DVD last night and was intrigued to see the different approaches each player had towards the rhythm for this tune (Les Yeux Noirs)
Tchavolo Schmitt's playing in particular had me fascinated, it seemed he was using quite a few chord substitutions to add interest. I couldn't quite work out what they were though...
Anyone have any idea what he was doing?
I could see that Stochelo was approaching the A7 chord with a quick Bb7 (?), which works quite nicely as a dominant approach chord.
The chords I use are:
||A7 | A7 |Dm6* |Dm6* |
|A7 |A7 |Bb7 |Bb7 |
|Gm6 |Gm6 |Dm6* |Dm6* |
|Bb7 |A7 |Dm6* |Dm6* ||
*voiced like Bm7b5, second fret.
