Django Reinhart – Minor Swing

I will give Django Reinhart the credit for this song, even though this version is played 
Johnny Depp in the movie “Chocolat”.
It’s quite hard to play this song. Listen to it many times to see how the rhythm goes, 
it's near to impossible to make rhythm when writing the tab. Remember that there are two 
playing this song at the same time in the real version, so when tabing it for only one
guitar, I had to do some editing.

Here starts the guitar “solo”. I cut this down a bit, because it’s not sounding too good 
the whole part without the other instruments.

Not a very good tab sorry. I do realise it's different since it isn't the original version, but even listening to Depp's version it misses out masses.
