Hello,
I would like to know in what key do you play Cesar swing.
I learned it in Dm from a french guitar magazine but i`m suspicious that most guys might play it in Am.
So which one is it?
Also who has recorded this great tune?
Are there any Mp3s available?
Thanks.

    The old versions are predominantly in d-minor

    Also who has recorded this great tune?

    Prinzo & Betzi Winterstein: "Sweet Guitar" (Dm)
    Schnuckenack Reinhardt Quintett: "Musik deutscher Zigeuner" (Vol. 1) (Dm)
    Mandino Reinhardt & Sweet Chorus: Anthologie "Manouche" Les Musiques d´aujurd´hui des Tziganes d´Alsace (Dm)
    Chela Weiss Quintet: "Maro Drom" (Dm)
    Tchan Tchou: "Live in Toulon 1982" (Am or Bbm ?)
    Moreno: "Yochka" (Dm)

    There are probably a lot of more recordings of this tune.

    Hope that helps.

    Best,
    Barengero

    I'd say Dm is the key to learn it in first. Also check out the intro on Moreno's version:
