Lesson 13: Freight Trane

Another lesson yesterday. Master took me through the changes of Freight Trane – opening track off the Kenny Burrell and John Coltrane album that he’d lent me the week before, the head of which I’d transcribed. He zapped me off a copy of the music and I think I nailed the melody with about 90% accuracy though having some trouble ‘swinging’ at such speed, i.e. playing the swing 8th notes at 236 bpm. Working on that though and right hand is getting better.
