Default Buddy Rich transcriptions

Hi everyone. I've been working on some Buddy Rich tunes to get a bit of insight into Buddy's big band playing. The tunes are Love for Sale, Big Swing Face and Mexicali Nose and they're all from the live cd 'Big Swing Face'. I've uploaded three full-tune transcriptions to the following link:

Transcriptions

Just scroll down the page a bit to get to them. (By the way can recommend a better way of uploading and organising this type of thing online?)

Hopefully some of you out there can make some use out of them.

Caroline

Nice work! That's a substantial chunk of stuff. Those are definitely the big three Buddy things, plus Ya Gotta Try. I did a series on blogging that has a clear (hopefully) explanation on how to make pdfs of your stuff, and share it online. I like your handwriting-- maybe I'd just make the images a little higher contrast.

Good work. Thanks for sharing.

Take a wee look over the fills again, make sure the orchestration right (i.e. some of the floor tom hits you notated are actually bass drums). Here's the transcription of the big fill from "Love for Sale" from Peter Erskine's drum fills book:

Keep up the good work!

Yes, you do have nice handwriting. It's nice to see folks can still write in cursive...

Excellent transcriptions! That is a lot of work; very impressive. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Todd, Ill check out some of those blogging tips a blog with separate pages for each transcription is probably better than putting them all up back to back. I had to make them JPEGs to put them on the website, but I think Ive found a way of uploading PDFs now.

Johanisu, thanks for the advice, there will no doubt be a few mistakes in there.. Ill definitely have another listen over the orchestration. On that link to the Peter Erskine book theres a Shadow Wilson fill from Queer Street just above. Theres a bit of a story to that, Ive got video footage of Alan Dawson doing a masterclass (hopefully to be made public soon) and hes talking about how hed played that fill with a band a week earlier and it was one of his all-time favorite solos so he was all ready to go dropping it in for 2 bars, as for 35 years hed always thought it was a 2 bar solo. So he thought hed nailed it, but then it turned out it was actually supposed to be 3 measures with the band, so he ended up in totally the wrong place. The one Alan plays is the same as whats written in the book, so I wonder what the mix up was maybe the Basie band dropped a measure or something.

Hehe glad some of you like the hand-writing!
