I'm having an extremely difficult time researching the song that Ralph plays in this video entitled "Little Cossette" here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8lB2650rik&t=229s

Every time I look it up all I get is results for the Les Miserables song. I would very much like to hear this original if anyone knows how I can get it. Thanks!

Also thanks to Andy Volk for putting this on Youtube!

Jeremey, I edited the original video but someone else put it up and mangled the song name. Coquette was a popular standard back in the day. Ralph's in E13th E. C#, G# on top.

Gotcha Andy! Thanks for clarifying. I never knew about this song. It's one of those songs that I'll never unhear now ha! Definitely a timeless classic, and apparently written by the brother of Guy Lombardo.

It's also a tune that's still played by Gypsy Jazzers because Django played it (and, I might add, played the heck out of it!)

That version really Swings Andy! Love me some Django! However this is the best steel version I can find. Any idea which steeler this would be?

*edit - Someone mentioned in the comment section "Herb Remington". Guess that's correct?

Also this is a fantastic version as well from the wonderful Noel Boggs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vUXjxpeqTk
