Transcriptions

An assortment of previously unpublished Emily music, both practice exercises and full songs for solo guitar mostly from her lesson videos: Jazz and Latin Improvisation and Bebop and Swing Guitar.
Meticulously transcribed by yours truly but have no illusions I am merely a layman working under the seasoned architectural guidance of Mr. John Horne.

So blow the dust off your metronome, (for a virtual one click here)
roll up your sleeves and get groovin’.

Created using Sibelius G7 software.

Finally, although this is an unedited first draft, You Know What I’m Sayin’ is ready to be test driven! This was an intense piece to notate just from listening and viewing by someone so green at transcribing. It’s an original Emily composition from This Is Me that was never more masterfully played as a solo than on the JazzMasters Guitar Show from which this transcription is based. Check back along the way to see when revisions are posted as the remaining mistakes and improper notations are corrected.
First audio is the midi file of the actual transcription, played at half speed for practicing.

Read this doc on Scribd: RED BLOUSE
What a nice yet lesser known Jobim tune this is and never a better arrangement
for solo guitar exists than the one Emily offers us here.
I would think if Jobim ever heard her version he would have exclaimed,
“Ah, now that’s how it should be played, magnifico!”
(LeadSheet version available on Guest Transcriptions page)
And for the record, officially this song is titled: The Red Blouse.
You can find the original song in iTunes Music Store.

This is the song Emily learned so she could go down to Manny’s Guitar store and impress listeners by playing both elements of a song, the rhythm and lead. It’s a great version for students but begs to be longer. A wonderful opportunity to explore your own ideas.

This song really moves. A nice piece to find a partner and trade off working on rhythm and lead.

Threads of Thought

If I have one mission, it’s to let people know that music is still something that has to do with the ears. When you get the pocket right, you can keep people dancing all night long. Music needs to live amongst the people. — Fareed Haque
