BenLoy, just use that automated tab converter that you play the album into and it spits out tab...you know, the one available at Best Buy. I seriously doubt you need the USB attachment that automatically plays the part on the bass for you though...from what I've heard I think you can handle that part yourself...given the tabs of course ;):thu:

Actually, Dave and Benloy, Sibelius 3 includes a tab converter.

 

All you have to do is input the notes and rhythm.

 

It's a gas! And it's almost always wrong.

 

They have a "fingering" plug in as well. And it's wrong too.

Still spendin' that political capital far faster than I can earn it...stretched way out on a limb here and looking for a better interest rate.

Melody Assistant does the same thing and allows you to set up string change and fret reach "penalties". The downloadable trial size is available on line for free. You have to go buy the "music input to tab output" converter seperately.

Nice one BenLoy ;):D

SW - Yes it is Tony Williams at an indecent age playing like he invented the drumkit.

Richard Davis is one of my all-time absolute favourite bass players. Transcribing this album would be a workout!

Funnily enough, I did used to play 'Hat and Beard' from the album - at least a very loose version - mostly just variants on the 9/4 bassline while the horns did their thing.

"And a crowd of young boys, they're fooling around in the corner

Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles

They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band

It ain't what they call rock and roll"

 

Myself, I listen to Dolphy's trumpet (or is that trombone?) N I li3k ti!

BL,

 

(OT sorry) What are your favourite Dolphy albums?

I love the live ones with Mal Waldron and Booker Little and Mingus' Live at Antibes. The above is one of my favourite records. Then there's Oliver Nelson's The Blues and the Abstract Truth (with Paul Chambers and Bill Evans).

Wow, you've got me motivated - I'll have to plug in the old record deck tomorrow.

I fancy a cotton sweatshirt myself; holds up well and is not too hard or scratchy. It doesn't do much for the computer, though.

 

:D:D:D

 

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist.) ;)

Actually, I read somewhere (probably Wikipedia) that songs from the middle ages (?) for lute and viols was often written down in tab format. These were instruments more of the common folk, so they likely wouldn't have been able to read/write standard notation.

 

Perhaps the lack of pre-80s tabs is the same reason it's hard to find online journal articles prior to that time: the internet wasn't around or wasn't ready for it yet.

That's strange, my copy of Out To Lunch came with tab.

 

Here's a sample:
