Hi everyone! Today, it’s not quite the Lick of The Week, but rather the Chorus of The Week:) It’s going to be a chorus from the great Sonny Stitt’s solo in 12 keys. I began transcribing this solo about a year ago, but never finished. I chose the second chorus of his solo because it’s...
i made this transcription in the last two weeks. It is the hardest I have done to this point and this time I purpusefully refrained from writing it down or using slowing down software.
It´s not perfect, but this is what I managed to do:
I really look...
I've found some easy-to-google Eric Alexander transcriptions such as those by Charles McNeal (THANKS Charles!!!)
Anyone know where I can find some recent transcriptions from his work in the last 10 years or so?
I have just finished working on an e-book containing 10 Coltrane solos on standards from his work with Miles Davis. I made sure to choose solos that you cannot find in any other books or online anywhere. Here is a taster video:

I have a constant struggle with playing over the changes to All the Things You Are. I love the tune, and I know the changes like the back of my hand... But, I don't have any great ideas to play over it.
Am I alone on this?
Can any of you help me? Are there any exercises that should help...
Just a brief description of my situation right now.

hi all SOTWers,
a short note to let you know that I recently launched a new website for all sax and EWI players:
The site features a huge index of over 1100 solo transcriptions found anywhere on the Internet...
Wondering if anyone has the PDF files of the Keith Oxman Sonny Stitt Transcriptions BOOK 2. They are no longer posted on the website I visit. I am hoping someone downloaded them. I have BOOK 1. If anyone is interested in it, PM me.
I've been a big fan of DMB for years and as a sax player, naturally grew up studying Leroi Moore's style and sound. I've built a fairly impressive library of Roi transcriptions, both horn parts and solos. Below is a list of parts/solos available on procustomtracks.com. I know I've posted about...
I just came across some riches;
YouTube also has this nice little intro;
then getting hotter;
which led me to this mother lode;
There is a site http://www.horntabs.net/ of which I am a member. The main demographic there is middle school, high school, and college aged kids who like to play Third Wave Ska Music, and some Funk Rock as well. The majority of the transcriptions are in tab format (ex: Bb, F, G#, etc.)...
I've got a few transcriptions on this site:
Feel free to ask for the pdf-file!
I'm not sure what is out there already, but I've found a lot of great transcriptions.
I would be happy to share mine as well.. better twice...
