Satin Doll - what piano solo to transcribe ?
Hello everyone,
having only little experience in transcribing solos I am now looking for a piano solo of the song Satin Doll that is not too fast and comparatively easy to transcribe - can anybody recommend a specific record ?
Kind regards
Angela

Scot -- 11/02/2004, 05:39:27 -- #8543
One of the easiest, and coolest, Satin Doll solos to transcribe is Monty Alexander on that great recording- Montreaux Alexander, Live at the Montreal Jazz festival 1977.

Thanks, Scot, I will check at our local cd store whether this solo is manageable for me, and if so try and transcribe it. This CD costs only 6.4 euros (Amazon Germany) - hopefully in good condition, so it might be worth ordering it even  without previously listening to it.

runs
I've been listening to a lot of art tatum and teddy wilson recently but i'm having a lot of difficulty with the runs they use.

I find myself fumbling around for a scale which sounds good when played fast over a minor 7th or major 7th with the added tones but can't seem to find anything that fits. invariably I end up reverting to the blues scale. is there a general rule when playing scales over chord changes?? i've tried messing around with pentatonics and modes but can't seem to find anything that fits.

Does anyone have any pointers?

dharminor -- 11/17/2004, 10:50:12 -- #9024
Mr. T there are rules based on analysis as to available chord scales. I.E. if you have a maj.7 chord that is the tonic in the key you would use the ionian scale or if it was a IV maj.7 the chordscale would be lydian, or V7 chords use Mixolydian. Basically you need to determine the function and quality of the chords played in the changes to decide what scales/modes would work. Then you can also get into pentatonic, blues, bebop scales,whole tone, alt. scales, and others. But it comes down to trial and error of what sounds good, and the use of analysis to steer you in the right direction.

nihonjin -- 11/17/2004, 14:34:37 -- #9028
Art Tatum hints
The runs that Tatum uses is often pentatonic scales starting from the third. For instance in the key of f it would be A G F D E. To spice it up he would add notes in the beginning or end of the lick  often cromatic passing tones. He would sometimes pick "weird scales" according to the harmony but played fast it really dosen't matter. The most important thing seems to be what is easy for the hand to play not the harmony. Check out Dick Hymans cd rom where he gives a lesson on  how to emulate Tatum.

God rest you merry, gentlemen
I've uploaded an arrangement of this seasonal tune in two formats.  I've also put a midi file of a few impro choruses in the Monthly Standard room.  Here are some notes about this setting for the song:

The words of this song have always seemed to me to be at odds with the strangely brooding, minor key feel of the melody - a bit like "My favorite things", which also sings of cheerful matters like kittens and mittens to a frankly sinister refrain.  On the subject of the words, by the way, note that the Gentlemen of the title are not merry - they are being greeted with the Old English blessing "God rest you merry", which is why the comma should come between "merry" and "gentlemen", not  "you" and "merry".  But I digress...

This tune is nice to play around with because it has no accidentals (strictly speaking it's in the aeolian mode) and is practically all quarter notes.  It can be played as swing, funk, latin or even waltz time.  My arrangement sticks to the straight on-the-beat representation of notes but in practice it works pretty well if you morph it into any kind of jazz style.  The chord progression is as vanilla as I can make it.  In a couple of bars (8 and 9) I've put the symbols in brackets where they don't strictly correspond to the dots, because I introduced a little harmonic flourish, just for fun.

To explain a bit of the thinking behind the harmonisation: it's not too difficult to fit pretty standard progressions to Gentlemen, such as the "Hit the road, Jack" groove, or the chromatic figure from the start of "In a sentimental mood", not to mention old standbys like II V I.   But I thought it would be interesting to begin with a progression that wouldn't normally be thought of as in the jazz idiom.  I first heard this sequence (Am C Dm F with a moving bassline) in a piece by the Irish piper Davy Spillane (which I've performed jazz-style now and then) and it has a very nice sense of upward movement that gives each chorus momentum from the start.  For improvisation purposes this progression is repeated over the next 4 bars, ending in a modulation into Bm7b5.  I've represented the link between the F and B chords as a basic C7, but in fact there's a lot of scope for crafty voicings, substitutions and interpolations at this point and I tend to approach it as a major landmark in each improvised chorus.

From here on there's an extended passage of harmonies descending stepwise from the Bm7b5, ending eventually back at Am.  Instead of moving through the chromatic equivalent of the cycle of fifths, I prefer when possible to follow m7b5s with dims - e.g. Bm7b5 Bbdim (bar 10), F#m7b5 Fdim (bar 12), Em7b5 Ebdim (bar 13).  This is also a simple way of achieving smooth voice-leading.  When I reached the Am in bar, I permitted myself a couple of bars of II V to modulate to the F in bar 15, employing a sequence often used towards the end of "My funny valentine".  The last few bars include a couple of variations on the minor II V I theme.

Finally some words about the voicings used in the notation.  The arrangement is pretty much as I played it straight into the sequencer.  I tidied up some of the timings with a touch of quantise (not too much) and I cleaned up a few notes here and there, but it's basically how I would normally play it as a slowish piano solo.  I like the ambiguous sound of minor chords that omit the third and include 7ths, 9ths and 11ths, clustered where possible.  I've used this kind of voicing in bars 2 and 6.  The last note in bar 2 is harmonised as a spaced-out Gmaj7, which gives a brief modal flavour.  Another favourite trick is to use inversions of relatively unadorned chords including simple triads.  I discovered the joys of inversions relatively late in the development of my understanding of harmony and maybe I use them more than I should, but I like the change of texture they introduce when integrated with the more conventional jazz voicings.  I've employed one such in bar 6 on the G/B chord.  The Em chords in bars 3 and 9 can also be played as C/E, for variety's sake.  Overall I've aimed for a pretty spare, open feel for the melody, but I think the progression offers plenty of scope for development into much denser, two-handed textures as well as inspiring interesting improvised lines.  I hope my account of the thinking behind the arrangement makes sense and that, pianistically speaking, God will rest you merry.

If you have a hard time hearing all the notes, choose a tune for which you already know the harmonic progression - this makes it a lot easier to figure what the chords are.

sorry-I think you wanted to suggestions for actual SONGS to start with. Well, I'm no expert in jazz, but here's an idea: Miles Davis had a great quintet back in the early 60's with Red Garland on piano... they played some simple tunes but in a beautiful, creative way.. and I think Red Garland's solos are worth transcribing, I see some people in this room have already done so...

What isn't displaying properly for the "you must believe in spring" transcription? When I open it up from this site, I don't see any errors. Maybe your pdf viewer is the problem?

I'll put up the Nardis transcription as a .mus file,  like Scot suggested earlier, that way you won't see annoying things like "A~" instead of "8va"

For the "you must believe in spring" transcription though, I used Cakewalk Scorewriter, which I don't think saves files in the .mus format.

"You Must..." is a .pdf file missing the font "Aloisen" so I get no cleffs, time signature and I'm missing some rhythmic notations...

I opened it with Adobe 5 (the program , not the reader)...

Some of the pdf writers save without the actual fonts, so if the user doesn't have those particular fonts, he/she won't be able to see em.

Steve,

Could you convert your .MUS transcription into a midi file please...

thx

steve_w -- 05/03/2005, 20:51:33 -- #13510
7,
1) excuse my stupidity, but which transcription are you referring to: Nardis or You Must Believe In Spring?
2) I'm not sure how to take a .mus file and convert it into midi... is there a program that does this or can it be done within the music notation program itself? I used Finale to do the Nardis transcription and Cakewalk Scorewriter for the other one, btw.

7 -- 05/05/2005, 01:49:09 -- #13552
You should be able to open the .mus file in Finale and then either "save as" a midi file or "export" to midi file.

"You Must Believe in Spring" is a .pdf file. So its not possible to turn it into a midi directly.

However, you said you made it in Cakewalk Scorewiter. You can turn the original score into a midi by clicking "export" (click "file" and you'll see it in the drop down menu).

Although, I can read, I prefer to hear a midi file and watch it played on the Van Basco virtual keyboard. I find that much more educational and it makes it easier for me to decide whether I want to go to the trouble of reading through the score.

The advantage of midi over .mus files is that every computer in the world recognizes midi. With .mus the user to install some form of Finale, so why not just make it available in midi so nobody has to go to any extra trouble, see?

Thanks!

steve_w -- 05/05/2005, 10:21:15 -- #13559
I'm sorry, I can't make that midi file you're asking for. I did some research, and it turns out you can only save notation files in the midi format with Finale (which I don't have), and not Finale Notepad (which I use due to a lack of $$).  

However, I am planning on buying a midi cable this summer -  then I'll be able to play stuff on my keyboard and record it directly onto my computer in midi/notation format. Then I'd be able to post my personal performance of that Nardis solo. You'll just have to be a little patient while I round up a little cash for that cable :)

The most common notation software today is probably Sibelius.  Finale was the reigning champ for a long time, also Encore.  All of these are fairly expensive (I'm not sure Encore is still around...I heard it went out, then I heard it came back or something like that)

Anyway, after fiddling around with the three  mentioned,  Sibelius gets my vote hands down.  Check out http://www.sibelius.com I think they have a student version for around 100 bucks

In Search of Blue in Green transcription
I'm seaching for a transcription of Bill Evans recording of "Blue in Green" from his trio album "Portrait in Jazz". Does anyone know if it exists. I'm already aware of the one from the "Kind of Blue" album.

Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

" I CAN ' T SLEEP " by Montana Taylor
Hello,
I've just found this wounderful blues piece and tried to trascribe it with a notation software,but the the result isn't clear enough.It would be great if anyone interested in doing a piano transcription of it.For those interested  I have uploaded  the file in the midi section.
Regards,
Alberto

flicklers -- 09/04/2005, 11:53:38 -- #18523
Midi files don't need transcribing.  Unlike wave or mp3 files they are actually a form of music notation and can be displayed as sheet music by a number of programs including the Van Bosco player, Finale Notepad Plus (paid upgrade of the free product), Noteworthy Composer (free trial version available) and many others.

Trouble with section
Hello Scott,

Thank you for your answer to my last message regarding practice.  At this point I am stumped with the transcription of Kenny Barron's solo on "Softly as in Morning Sunrise".  Specifically I have the problems with bars 6-12.  I have been after those six bars for the last few days and decided now to ask for help.  I would very much appreciate your assistance with those 6 bars. Looking forward to your reply.  Thanking you in advance.

Scot -- 09/14/2005, 12:27:37 -- #19024
Are you having trouble transcribing it or playing it?  I'm not familiar with Kenny Barron's solo on "Softly" so I'm not sure how much I can help?

albi -- 09/15/2005, 00:05:00 -- #19055
Clarification
I am sorry I should have been more specific.  I have a problem transcribing the section I mentioned.  The album is "People Time" with Stan Getz and the tune is "Softly As in the Morning Sunrise".  The problem I have is with Kenny's solo, bars 6-12.  If you could point me in the right direction with the transcription, it would be very much appreciated.  Thank you.

Scot -- 09/15/2005, 12:02:07 -- #19086
People Time is a great recording.  I don't know the solo, though, so I can't help you with the transcription.  You may want to transcribe the rest of the solo and then come back to the problem spots.

This has been one of my favorite songs for the last 25 years.  The best notes I have seen it on is in a book of Fat's Waller's Piano Solos transcribed by Paul Posnak.  It is available by Hal Leonard.

Try paulposnak.com or do a search for his name - I have written to him and he has a nice website.

As far as the solos go, he absolutely nailed it down.  According to his book, it took him 15 years to get all his song.  It will be the best $16.95 you'll ever invest.

If you really know the song well, you might want to spend a couple weeks transcribing it yourself. You'll learn 1000% more doing it that way than just learning from a piece of sheet music.

Also, it's not a good idea to ask people here to break the law and send you copyrighted material. ASCAP and BMI watch this site, and who knows who else watches it.

If I finish this difficult job(Blue in Green), I am happy to share with all of you. Althought it is hardly for me to hear the voicing structure in my level,I will try it.   Thanks Scot.

Freedie Freeloader Transcription
Hi,

I'm kind of new to Jazz, i've only been playing for just over 1 year. I've struggled with teachers and i am debating wether to discipline myself and then find a teacher later on down the line. I have all the real books and i believe that knowledge is power and i can happily learn them on my own and study the chord progressions within the pieces i learn etc.

Improvisation however is proving to be tricky and slow moving but i guess i am noticing a small change as i practice on a daily basis.

Regarding transcribing, i am struggling to see how someone can transcribe. I have been trying to figure out the solo from Bill Evans in Freddie Freeloader but i can't quite get it.

What is the best way to transcribe a record like this and if anyone has the transcription i would love it! ;)

Emanon

knotty -- 05/10/2007, 07:10:32 -- #34962
Hey,

that's not gonna help you much but I believe Wynton Kelly plays that track if you're referring to 'Kind of Blue'.
Also, I tried transcribing that particular solo myself -- as an absolute beginner -- transcribing for the first time. For some reason, I think the recording is off. All was out of tune.  I moved on to another tune.

As for the transciptions, it is right here, under files (or maybe under scot's room). I know Scot has transcribed and shared it already.

Good luck.

Scot -- 05/11/2007, 08:55:44 -- #34984
If a transcription is more of a problem than you thought, then try a different song. Try some easier tunes, something slower.  Listen to your jazz collection until you find something you can do.

Also, the first things people transcribe are heads, the melody/chords, to a tune.  I did about dozen transcriptions of the melodies of tuns (it's how I first learned On Green Dolphin street :) before I even tried a piano improvisation.

You're really talking about melodic dictation.  Why not take a theory class that provides some training and practice in that area??....if not. start with simple tunes - tunes that are already in your head "Twinkle Twinkle" "Mary Had A Little Lamb" - practice playing those in all keys...C Jam Blues is another - just two notes (5 & 1) - play em in all 12 keys

how do you catch the fast notes
I really want to transcribe some good solos I hear. But there are some parts that completely elude me - the thing modulates and I just can't catch some bits cos they're too fast! :(

Please could someone share how you transcribe those fast bits and the bits that modulate so it's really hard to get the notes? I'm using trial and error now for the tough bits but I can't seem to match what's being played (cos the CD goes so fast) for certain bits. :'(

Transcribe software
Hi,

What I used to do was mark the rhythm of the notes I was having trouble with so I knew at least where they should be.  I'd do as much of the transcription as I could, finish everything except the hard spots, then go work on them by trial and error, just like you.  That's how you do it at first, and if you can't get the exact notes, play something that sounds similar. Eventually you might pick up on the right notes.

You can also check out a piece of software called "transcribe" to help with the transcription, but I think it's better to do it your way.

I looked for my transcription a while back but couldn't find it anywhere. I know I have a folder of transcriptions I'm missing, I can't find about half a dozen very cool monty alexander transcriptions either... If I do run across it, I'll post it for sure.

Help
Hi, I am new here and am not sure how to get around on the site. I am trying to access these transcriptions. Where exactly are they. I am apparently in the "Transcription" room and I see a whole bunch of posts such as blue in green; bill evans. Are all these posts simply requests for transcriptions, or do some of them actually link to actual transcription files?

I'm sure this will become clear as I familiarize myself with the site, but right now it is confounding.

A program that converts mp3 to midi????? !!!!

Scot -- 04/19/2008, 16:41:52 -- #41093
I haven't tried them, but there are a LOT of programs that do things like that.

Do a google search on "mp3 to midi" or "wav to midi" and I'm sure you'll find a bunch.  When you find some that look good, do a search for reviews of those softwares so you know how people in the real world feel about them, not just the website trying to sell it.

Trouble with transcription files
When I select a transcription to download from the list of available transcriptions, it opens to a blank page and states that the page cannot be found. I have tried clicking on several transcription links without success. Anyone else experiencing this or have a solution? Thanks for any suggestions.

Could Scot increase the filesize limit
Hi Scot

I have a transcription I'd like to share with everyone, but it's a whopping 333Kb (after compression to zip). Could you perhaps increase the upload limit to, say, 500kb?

Scot -- 02/03/2009, 10:09:06 -- #43620
Filesize
Ok, I've increased it to 350k.

advanced chord comping
can someone send me advance chord changes to the following song? Amazing Grace How Sweet The Sound, please. thank you. send it to my email. morgjjj1971@yahoo.com

Scot -- 10/26/2009, 17:45:14 -- #45634
Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace needs to be learned from a recording!  It's a simple tune with three different chords in it's most simple form. In the key of Bb all you need to know is Bb, F7, and Eb.

Bb  |  Bb|  Eb  | Bb
Bb  | Bb | F7 | F7 |
Bb  | Bb| Eb | Bb|
Bb | F7 | Bb | Bb |

Ok, jazzed very slightly:

Bb7 | Fm7 Bb7 | Eb | Bb |
Bb7 | Gm7 C7 | F7 | Cm7  F7 |
Bb7 | Fm7 Bb7 | Eb7 | Bb7
Gm7 | C7  F7 | Bb7 Bb7 |

Check this out:

It's a gospel how-to that I put up on U stream that also talks about Amazing Grace.

Transcriptions
Hey there,

Really fascinated to find your site and the great work you've done here. I've transcribed quite a bit in the past, most notably from Kenny Kirkland and Dave Kikoski. I'd go along with the transcribing solos yourself mantra, perhaps with the assistance with software such as transcribe, which i've found absolutely brilliant. You can slow down the music whilst maintaining pitch, or if you're tgranscribing for a horn player, move the music to a different transposition to make things easier.

I've also found a few good websites along the way;

www.jaztranscriptions.co.uk is run by a pianist who is also very passionate about transcriptions himself - there's a few good ones there.

Bert Ligon's site (http://www.music.sc.edu/ea/Jazz/transcriptions.html) is an absolute must.

Also jazznote.co.uk offers a transcription service for the lazier ones amongst us. I think he transcribes leadsheets and solos and does a damn good job from what i've seen

Keep up the great work.

Regards,

Neil
