Notes: The old Italian/French song, "J'attendrai", arranged for Reno-style (labelled Scruggs, but really more Reno-ish) banjo. Also, it's labelled jazz, but it's really a Jazz tune arranged for bluegrass banjo; the chords are authentic though. Taken from Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, & the Hot Club de France's movie from 1939. The ending is played by planting the heel of the right hand behind (above) the strings, & brushing upward in rapid succession (eight notes) with the index & middle fingers; this is hard, but definitely doable with practice. The Django-style run can be played with thumb & index up to a certain speed, and can probably be played at faster speeds with all three fingers though I do not play this way. Have fun!
