I´m looking to build a repertoire of gypsy jazz tunes to be able to jam at Django´s festivals.
Can somebody make a list of the ten most played songs, please?
Thanx in advance

    Harry,

    take a look at Archtop Eddy's great article on the subject:
    http://www.hotclub.co.uk/html/samplaying.html

    There you will find the top ten-jamlist and much more. And check out also the Tips for Samois thread in Archtop Eddy's corner on this forum.
