i very much appreciated what clifford suggested to do on summertime a couple of posts down.  can anybody make some suggestions about how to analyze mccoy's solo's on "my favorite things" with coltrane on the same album.  clearly there  is lot of "quartile" harmony and block chords, but my ear is not good enough yet to catch all the inner voicings.  any suggestions would be much appreciated.  drsam7

the real book chart has little similarity to coltrane version.
(on the record, the bass plays an e drone throughout, never any other chord change.) and the c section is reserved for the end of the tune.
i spent many hours and figured  out all mccoy's exact voicings for that original recording of my favotite things. mccoy plays the same voicing sequences over and over, he clearly worked them out though he slightly varies the order on different choruses and recordings.

the first part goes:

8 bar intro
8 bar vamp (e-)
letter a (e- 16 bars)
8 bar vamp (e-)
letter a (e- 16 bars)
16 bar vamp (e major)
letter b (16 bars e major)
letter a (e- 16 bars) soloing begins...

after the first intro mccoy vamps (no melody)
| e-9 | f#-9 | e-9 | f#-9 | | e-9 | f#-9 | e-9 | f#-9 |

letter a (melody)
| e-  | e- maj7 | e-7 | e-maj7 |
| a- ( 3 5 6 9) | a- ( 6 1 3 5) | a- ( 3 5 6 9) | a- ( 6 1 3 5) |
| a- ( 3 5 6 9) | a- ( 3 b5 6 9) | b-7/e | f/e |
| a- ( 3 5 6 9) | a- ( 6 1 3 5) | a- ( 6 1 3 5) | f#dim7/e |

i'll give you the b section later,(mccoy uses almost no 4ths voicings on the original recording.)
i have it transcribed carefuly into a sibelius file.
i liked the way outcast play this song its on the speakerbox love below album. the pianist name is um oh i cant think of it right now, but he's smoking.

jazz+, thats very helpful.  can i get your email?  or alternatively, here is mine;  sgilmore@uci.edu     email me and i will reply.  thanks, drsam7

1,look for a hard disk drive that has enough space to meet your needs
knowing how much space you need on your hard drive can be a difficult thing. often times, people don't think they need much space but then they come to realize that they needed more than they originally thought. for instance, some people think that they just need to purchase a hard drive that is going to cover their files. for instance, if they have about 10 gigabytes of files, they may purchase just a 20 to 40 gigabyte hard drive. the problem with this is that you are not accounting for the operating system. if you plan to run an operating system like linux or windows on the computer, then you need to purchase a hard drive that has enough space to properly run the operating system and store your files. there are other things to keep in mind as well, for instance, what software are you going to be putting on the computer? software can take up a lot of space on a computer, especially games and software that is very complex. these types of software titles can get up into several gigabytes of space, so you need to have a big enough hard drive to accommodate for these applications.

of course, you can easily see there are so many <a href="https://www.harddrivestore.org/">laptop hard drive for sale</a> online, when purchasing a hard drive, it's okay to purchase more gigabytes than you actually need, just like me, i love installing lots of games, so i bought a big <a href="https://www.harddrivestore.org/">sony laptop hard drive</a> in advance. however, if you were to purchase less gigabytes than you actually need, this is not going to be okay because you won't be able to do the things that you want to do on your computer. be sure to shoot for more disk space. keep in mind that installing a hard drive on a laptop can be more complicated than installing a hard drive on a desktop computer. you also need to accommodate for the installation costs when you're going to have a company install this for you. look online and do some comparison shopping so that you can find the <a href="https://www.harddrivestore.org/">best laptop hard drive</a> for a price that makes sense for your budget.

need more info about laptop hard drives or purchasing, please go harddrivestore.org

<br>thank you, useful.
<br>thank you, useful
<br>but to be frank, it doesn't tell in detail what should we do to choose a best one, agree?
<br>i don't think it's good to buy a new hard dirve, why not change the laptop? lol.
dear jazz+!

i'm trying to learn the piano parts for this particular version of my favorite things - it's now my phone ring tune so i became quite addicted to it.
could you post / send me the sibelius file you mentioned?
do you have a (more) complete version by any chance?
my mail is natloz.renrew at gmail dot com
