I'm guessing many Django fans/gypsy jazz musicians deeply appreciate Chet Atkins. The appreciation is significant for me, as my dad used to play the album (yes, the album!) Chester & Lester for me when I was a kid, so my first time to hear many of the songs in the GJ repertoire came from those memorable days. My question is: what songs can you name that were recorded by both Django & Chet Atkins? I came up with 25, but I'm guessing there are many more. Most forum members probably know that Chet Atkins (perhaps one of the most respected guitarists of all time?) often said that Django was one of his favorite guitarists. I'll start with the 7 tunes on that album (recorded with Les Paul) that Django also recorded & you all can take it from there. To create a fun opportunity for everyone that wants to get involved, please limit your submissions to 7 that haven't yet been posted:

Have fun with it.
