Re: It finally happened...the snareless gig

A couple of Elvin transcriptions (and a Brian Blade one why not?)

Here are some transcriptions I did during the winter, Resolution was a challenging one to say the least. I'm also finishing up a Billy Higgins solo, I'll upload it here when it's done.

Re: Where are you comping at with your left hand?

Using programs to slow down the music is fine. You don't have to transcribe a whole tune, start simple, it can be an 8 or 4 bar break, or maybe just two bars in which Max plays some really cool...
