Time for some transcriptions of these marvellous bebop lines. This is perfection. Let's start off with "For Django". Dig that fantastic bebop tone on his ES 175 while you're at it! My FB friend and author of "Sheets of Sound" Jack Zucker has been writing about this classic sound for many years now ...
The following tune you will find on his live album : "Joy Spring". Anoher super classic Joe Pass album. This album was recorded live in the same year, 1964.
And let's continue with his fantastic solo on Joy Spring. If you are interested in the original Clifford Brown solo played on guitar by me click here. Or go right to Joe's fantastic take below:
Here's the head of this take as transcribed by FB friend PM Brown:
And here's the complete solo in midi with tabs. It was transcribed by another FB pal Scot Gormley.
And here's a take a did on the tune years ago with the head as played by Joe Pass and transcribed by PM Brown above. The solo is mine.
