This page is dedicated to some of my own transcriptions of my favorite solos and tunes. You can freely download some of them, and feel free to contact me if you have any question about it. These PDFs are for private educational purpose only. Any commercial use without a specific authorization is forbidden.
As you should know, a transcription is only a guideline, and you have to listen through the record again and again to be able to reproduce all the nuances of the execution. This step is very important, as well as learn by heart the song and the solo you want to study.
You can find here some classic jazz solos from the 50’s and 60’s as well as more recent material. I’m happy to share these transcriptions with all the world since I strongly believe in cooperation, with the hope these sheets will help other musicians to enrich their own personal taste. I also believe in free access to culture for everybody, that’s why I put some of the material for free. Nevertheless, to protect my job and as a compensation for the effort involved in transcribing, I ask for the other material a donation of 5 € (if interested contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
You can find a donate button below. If you think this work is useful and valuable, you can also make a symbolic donation of 1€ for the free material. Thank you.
