Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I was pretty surprised to find that there are so few Madeleine Peyroux songs on 
here at the moment (6!) since I thought she was pretty popular and her songs are 
pretty tab-able. Oh well.

This is my favorite of hers. And it has a relatively standard jazzy chord 
progression. Suggestions for how to play the chords are at the bottom. You can 
actually play these chords in the conventional open string way, but it sounds 
better to me higher up.

Gmaj7        G6          Am7      D7
J'avoue j'en ai bavé pas vous mon amour
Am7      D7              Gmaj7     G6
Avant d'avoir eu vent de vous mon amour
G7        Cmaj7
Ne vous déplaise
B7                Em
En dansant la Javanaise
Am7   D#dim7 Bm7 A7#5
Nous nous aimions
           A9      D9
Le temps d'une chanson

À votre avis qu'avons-nous vu de l'amour
De vous à moi vous m'avez eu mon amour
Ne vous déplaise
En dansant la Javanaise
Nous nous aimions
Le temps d'une chanson

Hélas avril en vain me voue à l'amour
J'avais envie de voir en vous cet amour
Ne vous déplaise
En dansant la Javanaise
Nous nous aimions
Le temps d'une chanson

La vie ne vaut d'etre vécue sans amour
Mais c'est vous qui l'avez voulu mon amour
Ne vous déplaise
En dansant la Javanaise
Nous nous aimions
Le temps d'une chanson

Beginner way (does not sound too good, but is easy)

Just play D7 and G7 instead of the D9 and G9.

   Gmaj7 G6 Am7 D7 G7 Cmaj7 B7 Em D#dim7 Bm7 A7#5
e|-0-----0--1---1--0--0-----0--0--2------0---0--|
B|-0-----1--1---0--1--1-----3--1--1------3---2--|
G|-0-----2--2---0--3--2-----1--2--2------0---0--|
D|-2-----2--0---0--2--2-----0--2--1------0---3--|
A|-3-----3--x---2--3--x-----2--0--x------2---0--|
E|-x-----x--x---3--x--1-----0--x--x------0---x--|



Proper way

In the first two lines the high G is actually contained in every chord, so the 
first two Dm7 are really Dm7sus4 or add4.
You'll also notice that in this chart below, Dm7 is mentioned twice. As I play 
this song I move down the fretboard (towards the machine head) so in the "Nous 
nous aimions" line the Dm7 D#dim7 Em7 progression starts round the 5th fret.

   Gmaj7 G6 Am7 D7 G7 Cmaj7 B7 Em Am7 D#dim7 Bm7 A7#5 A9 D9
e|-x-----x--x---x--x--x-----7--5--5---5------7---x----x--x--|
B|-8-----8--8---8--8--10----9--5--6---7------8---6----5--3--|
G|-9-----9--10--10-9--7-----7--5--5---5------7---6----5--2--|
D|-9-----7--10--9--8--9-----9--5--7---7------9---5----4--3--|
A|-x-----x--x---10-x--8-----7--x--5---6------7---x----5--x--|
E|-8-----8--10--x--8--x-----x--5--x---x------x---5----x--3--|
