    my trio is currently working on jazz crimes by joshua redman. i am doubling on the melody and for the most part have got it down but there are two lines that are just screwing with me. it is two 16th not lines. they are at the end of bar 4 and 8 of the melody line.

    so i would like to know from anyone who has approached this song if there is an efficient fingering for those two lines. also any addition info on the song will be much appreciated

    thanks for any help
  2. Good luck bro. My drummer wanted to do this song and I'm like, "uhhh, we'll get around to it..."

  3. Hey since you guys are working on this, if you have any rehearsal recordings or whatnot, I'd be interested in hearing them. No judgement, lol. I'd just like to know how you guys approach the song.

    this was about a month ago. have made lots of progress since then. the form is about the same as the original. i play chords behind the guitarist and then double the melody.( i miss my place on 2nd time through). now we are just working on adding effects to see what works and what doesnt
