    I think Django is playing G7#9 and then descending a half step to Gb7#9 with the roots on the 10th fret of the A string. He's doing a tremolo with the right hand and just striking the 2nd,3rd, and 4th strings so you really only need to fret those notes. He used that shape a lot for tremolo effects, like in Nuages for example.

    It sounds very dissonant over what the rhythm section is playing (Gm/C7)

    The second time he starts on G9 and then goes to Gb7#9.

    Tough to say for sure as there is so much distortion from the amp, but I think that's right.

    Found it: 1949. The crazy part starts at around 1:40. Man, Django was on fire in those Rome sessions! Err, In a good way, I mean..not the kind of on fire which cause debilitating injury and paralysis.

    Michael, yes agreed. Very cool! Tritone sub Gb7 for C7. Thx

    Thx Wim. Yup, love the Rome sessions. That one is an absolute classic. I have not done any transcribing in a long time but if I ever get the time I'd like to do that one.
