I had a real fun project come my way, and wanted to share about it, and - if anyone has some similar experience / projects to share, this can be the place for it.
A piano player buddy of mine learned the Wynton Kelly piano solo to Freddie Freeloader on the Miles Davis album, Kind Of Blue.
He asked me to play bass (remotely) for him.
So - I learned the Paul Chambers bass line behind the piano solo, recorded it and videoed it and sent it back to him.
The net result, for me, is 4 choruses transcribed of an absolutely gorgeous, super groovy walking bass line for a blues in Bb (with a weird Ab chord at the end - watch out for that).
Here’s the version I did in my notebook. If anyone is interested, I’d be happy to make a nice .pdf with the chord symbols and all that.
Anyone else have some cool transcriptions? Things they want to transcribe? Treasure troves of transcriptions from the online ether? Share 'em here!
