    Well that's the trouble with a lot of Jazz "fake books" that they disagree and tunes are transposed into different keys.

    I should admit that I took mine from the "More than a Play Along" book - it mentions that John Hicks, who is the piano player involved, has played for more than 20 years with things like Mingus Big Band, Mingus Dynasty etc.

    For Samie :

    Well it's a Blues and it's 12 bars long!
     
  7. Is there any tabs out there for this tune?
    if there is, can anyone hint at where they may be?
    Cheers,
    Evan

    You must be joking!! Anyway - Tabs for what - the "tune" or melody is usually played on Sax. Tabs for Sax? :eek:

    The bassline is just improvised and would be different every time - how can you Tab that? :rolleyes:

    You're really showing your ignorance now Bruce.

    Saxtab, as it's more commonly known, is like a diagram of which buttons you push on the instrument to make the notes come out when you blow.

    Hmmm ...I think it must be that stuff I see in front of every one of the hundreds of Sax players I have seen at close quarters; that they stare at when they're not improvising..... you know it has loads of horizontal lines and dots, sometimes with tails? ;)

    I've seen that stuff. It's never going to catch on, it's just a fad :D

    Lines and dots? Pah, that's insane. How do they know which fret to 'push'?
