So there I was, enjoying my lunch in the Cafeteria at Django in June, chatting with a fellow camper, and the subject of our favorite songs to improvise over came up. I mentioned Django's Tiger, to which my friend replied "DJango's Tiger is great except for that F7 chord". I replied "What's wrong with the F7 chord?". to which he said, "It's not supposed to be there. Django never played an F7. He simply played "out" over the second 2 measures of E7."
In disbelief, I went straight to my dorm room, logged on to youtube with my laptop, in order to confirm his assertion...and much to my surprise, he was correct! There is NO F7 in the original recording of Django's Tiger. Yet, in every fake book and chord book, it is written with an F7.
How exactly did this happen I ask? What F7 loving individual started this sham, and what exactly was their endgame? Were they playing god? Was it simply lazy transcribing ?
