In this lesson we glue clips 14, 15 & 16 together so form the final part of our solo. As I’ve said in the video, don’t attempt this until you’ve got clip 13 from lesson 7 done!
Today we’ve got something a little different. This clip 13 is HARD and it had me stumped for days, so I’ve decided to transcribe it onto paper for you so you can work through it.
Lesson six of Surrey with the Fringe on Top is clips 11 & 12. In this lesson i’m demonstrating how I want you to go about practicing this, splitting each clip so you can get it and then pulling them all together.
Unlike many of our other transcription projects, there is no stunning ‘break’ into the solo, indeed Sonny is very understated here and that’s what make this solo stand out
These clips take us to the end of the ‘head’ section before we go into Sonny’s amazing solo…just remember this is just sax and drums and it sound so amazing!
In this lesson we’re getting into the main part of the melody composed by Rodgers & Hammerstein and getting a masterclass in how to interpret what is quite a simple melodic idea.
