    Man,during winter break,my Jazz band Teacher wants us to learn 21st Century Schizoid Man by King Crimson....I'm already arranging a day so our drummer and I can meet up.

    (We are both kinda screwed,since the guitar solo is simple,while the bass and the drums do all the work).

    If we don't have it mastered by January 9th,we will drop the song,but it's interesting and I can challenge myself (I've never played anything like this)

    I know the key is in C,but the time signatures change way too much lol

    I think there's a transcription including the bass part on songsterr.com.

    The key was Cm, it sounded mostly right to me.

    I'll try comparing the songsterr version to the isolated bass track
