I'm cleaning out some old files today and I ran across this rough demo from 10 years ago... Nuages on B11 tuning. It's just steel and drum track. I thought you guys might like to hear it. I think I played this on my Guyatone D-8 console.

Nuages - "Clouds." Great number and a great addition to the B11 repertoire. Very Happy

Great Jack, I will be in the audience listening...look forward to all the great music there !

Doug, nice job as always...this has long been one of my favorite Django's composition...probably his best known.
As always, your playing inspires me...I play it on 6 string guitar, but havent worked on it much on steel...I should try
it again ! Thanks for posting it.

It does fit really nice in the B11 tuning or C11 tuning in my case. Great find Doug!

Mike, I'm glad you're playing it on your tuning. I hope more steel players start playing this great tune. I first heard the song on a Chet Atkins album. He played it in a somewhat Latin style and I like that. I should have tabbed it out when I recorded it 10 years ago. I've forgotten how to play it, and I seldom play B11 nowadays. Andy Volk has an arrangement of Nuages in his B11 song book.

Rose Sinclair has been performing that song for years, and beautifully if I don't say so myself. Wink

It's one of Django's most beautiful songs. Well played, Doug! I arranged another beautiful Django composition,Manoir De Mes Reves, in D6th tuning (a one-string variation from Open D) for my book on Open D and related tunings. Audio at bottom of thread).

I've wanted to do Nuages ever since I learned JB's intro to "Sand". I plan on doing Sand after I've played Nuages, going from F to D.
