Here's a lovely ballad from John Scofield's "Grace Under Pressure" (Blue Note, 1992). Your comments are welcome!

Best, Ville

I transcribed the head to "Same Axe" on the same record years ago. I could never figure out the changes. Is there any way you could?

Thanks,
Chris

Here you go Chris!

I suppose the tune has no composed chord progression, but the melody and solos are built on the given bass line. I simply inferred the harmony from the relation of the melody and bass notes. Hope this helps.

Best, Ville

Any secrets to transcribing chords? I have the hardest time with that partly because I am not sure if what I am hearing in the bass is the root, 3rd, etc of the chord. I know it's a question of just "doing it" but it is so frustrating.

My secret weapon for figuring out melodies, harmonies and bass lines is an app called Transcribe! which costs $39 at http://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/buy.html.
