Max Valentino's "Alegria"

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by BrettAM, Jun 14, 2002.


  1. Might anyone know where I could find a Tab of Max Valentino's "Alegria" or "A Caravan of Dreams"?

    ok.....Thanks for the compliment! I am thrilled someone is really interested in learning my tunes! Writing them out could be a bit time consuming...and tabs for those do not exist. Actually those two tunes from my CD are complete improvs ("Caravan Of Dreams" is actually a live recording from the Solo Bass Looping Tour with Michael Manring and Steve Lawson; the chord structure is composed but the arrangement and melodies are completely improvised from that show...no overdubs, no edits)
    Ironically, I just spent the afternoon "re-learning" both those tunes for a couple of solo shows I have this weekend (thought it might be a good stimulus to purchase the CD if folks heard some cuts from it!)
    I made some cursory notes on both, in standard notation ( I seldom if ever tab anything), but might find some time to tab them out for you..or at least the general "themes" ("Caravan" has about six distinct melody/harmony lines, both played and looped).
    send me an e-mail...ekstasis1@hotmail.com

  4. Thanks for getting involved, I was a bit worried that there would be no tab (or standard notation) for those particular songs since they are improvs. I hope some people buy your Disc, there's some great compositions on there (Hidden Road comes to mind). Anyway, I remember in your synopsis that you included with the CD you said that Here & Now was a fully planned composition... I don't suppose you've got a copy of that lying around? No pressure though. Thanks for respoding!

    P.S. Are you considering doing another solo tour? I'd love to see you perform sometime!
