One of Django Reinhardt’s most famous ballads. I’m told Nuages means “clouds.” This melody certainly is beautiful!
The “fake book“chord changes here are very simplified from what our gypsy group Babik played in the video below. The second chart below is more true to Babik’s (and other gypsy artist’s) version. I’ve also provided an audio play-along track that is in the Latin style (a frequent variation in the performance of this song). See the Master Class instructional video for my talk through of how to improvise over these rather tricky chord changes.
