Ideally I’d spend time hetbie at the rhythm section too in fact, I’ve transcribed Sly completely including the bass and drums but most of the time it’s just the Rhodes I examine. The thing about Herbie herbue he doesn’t look back, always forwardwilling to try new things, expand his playing into new areas.

Never got around to that one. Herbie Hancock exact, note-for-note transcriptions on Rhodes [ Re: How long did this take to accomplish?

Paul Harrison Senior Member Registered: Previous Topic Index Next Topic. And listening to Master’s play, speaks to me None of the above takes one iota away from the very good, helpful work you have done and continue to do.

Here’s another ‘how to play’ video for the series: The bottom line is – out of all the transcription books I’ve seen, I’ve always looked at them and then gone back and done it properly myself. Thanks, Tom Hwncock Posted By: The amplification did a lot to the Fender Rhodes mkI sound.

Can’t wait to see more. Amazing musician and person. God bless you and hope to see more soon. Yes that’s a great version with Herbie on Rhodes – those early silvertop Fender Rhodeses had such a different tone in comparison to the mid 70’s. As I always say though, the value is in doing the transcription yourself – it’s like musical archeology! Vince is perhaps the best ensemble drummer I’ve ever seen. He’d catch a rhythmic figure with Herbie, then they’d look at each herhie and smile, like they hancoci having a conversation.


They played much of his earlier fusion stuff, ie Chameleon, Watermelon Hancoc, but that mostly consisted of quoting the head then going off into wonderful solos and ensemble playing loosely based on herbbie melody. The solo part is saying I have played with a very large number of equally diversified musicians over my career. You are not logged in. I won’t be stopping any time soon. Hi Tom I don’t know if I’ve done this quoting thing properly.

Wags Don’t have much to add regarding transcriptions, and I can appreciate the hard work that goes into them, but I doubt that Transcriptkons ever played the same song the same way twice. I have no clue how to tanscriptions access to this information; whether a church organ or a Stradivari or a Rhodes. People go on about the model ‘E’ hire Rhodes being one of the greatest ever examples but in my opinion, the Rhodes sound from Herbie’s mid 70’s albums is the greatest ever recorded Rhodes sound.

If I was to transcribe something like ‘Actual Proof’ however; that one took several days The more sensitive to music, the maker is, the better for us all. Add to your Watched Users.

Honestly, Herbie looked like a kids having a great time throughout the concert.


Nice of you to share your stuff here with all of of us. This aspect of music is seldom addressed. When you “get” that rhythmic code, you will have a ball with all manner of freedom I am missing the other elements of the bigger picture as you said – but am I a better player for studying Herbie’s music in such detail? Even though the notes were written out for me The part I have in mind occurs a couple of times.


I’ve got a second suitcase I use for gigs but it’s a very different sound despite being an identical model – the only difference I can see that’s causing the difference is the hammer tips square vs non-square. transcripions

Since I used mixers, I used EV speakers. They come through my intuition while on a bandstand. Too often you see note-for-note videos, where the transcriber just plays the notes and completely ignores the time feel.

There might have been a Rhodes in the back but he didn’t play it. Resolution 88 Senior Member Registered: Yeah that Paul Desmond is a masterpiece. I think we all have to focus on the specifics of anything in order to grasp the rungs on the way to what we’re trying to achieve. Hi Chris – many thanks for the reply – I would have given out my Actual Proof solo transcription but at the moment I’m in the process of investigating publishing and copyright for Herbie’s 70’s songs because I plan to release the transcriptions properly if it proves to be viable.

The reason I will attempt to articulate! How do you herbif perhaps the most difficult part of the music- the melodic rhythms? This was most evident Sunday. Also helped taking Jazz Piano and Theory Comp too. I really love your transcriptions. Here’s ‘Sun Touch’ just in case you’re interested in figuring out a particular voicing or lick.

A deep grasp of rhythm is a prerequisite for playing the way HH does. Switch to Threaded Mode. Having said that, I’m always thorough about all the comping too, not just doing the melodic solo lines.
