Transcriptions

Transcribing is probably the best way to learn any piece, solo, or new musical style. It is time-consuming but makes you listen like never before. Since many excellent tunes are not in any Real Books (including the Latin Real Book), it's also a necessity. Most of the charts below were written for various musical groups I've been involved in. Most of them are not in print to my knowledge. I hope you find them useful - please download (they're in GIF or PDF format), print, and play! You may need to form your own group to do play some of them. For the salsa, usually the singer already knew their stuff, so they don't include the lead vocal part.
