One Finger Snap – Herbie Hancock Solo Transcription | CKendrickMusic
Ideally I’d spend time looking at the rhythm section too in fact, I’ve transcribed Sly completely including the bass and drums but most of the time it’s just the Rhodes I examine. Their inner experience of a “rhythmic bed” is much more hidden or covert.
I am missing the other elements of the bigger picture as you said – but am I a better player for studying Herbie’s music in such detail? Yeah that Paul Desmond is a masterpiece. He’d catch a rhythmic figure with Herbie, then they’d look at each other and smile, like they were having a conversation.
I think studying classical and then applying the interval training really helps.
Having said hqncock, I’m always thorough about all the comping too, not just doing the melodic solo lines. These are all inner, in nature, personal, nothing directly to do with music theory, or reading music.
If I was to transcribe something like ‘Actual Proof’ however; that one took several days If only they still manufactured square hammer tips Obviously I aspire to having the ability and command of music that Hzncock does so that I could view things on a much more general plane – rhythmically, harmonically etc. I don’t know about the prototype theory – if I ran the Rhodes factory and supplied one to Herbie, even if I said it was a ‘stock’ model, I’m sure I’d have chosen the best out of ‘s – but I don’t know whether what Herbie had was anything more than a fantastic example, slightly modified.
When you “get” that rhythmic code, you will have a ball with all manner of freedom Can’t wait to see more. I can tell you, that playing with them, backs this belief of mine up. In the ’80s article, he seemed to be talking about a particular Rhodes he’d had for a while, and didn’t dispute the interviewer’s assertion herbe it was a prototype.
This aspect of music is seldom addressed. Totally agree about studying and training hard. Also helped taking Jazz Piano and Theory Comp too. I have played with a very large number of equally diversified musicians over my career.
I’m not saying there’s nothing to learn from transcriptions, but you’d be much better off working on technique, understanding harmony, and developing your own voice.
Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. Also when are we going to see Actual Proof and Shiftless Shuffle in a video or book? Keep it up, I am waiting for Spank-a-Lee.
I think we all have to focus on the specifics of anything in order to grasp the rungs on the way hanxock what we’re trying to achieve. Would kill for your transcription of ‘Actual Proof’ solo, I’m playing this tune for my college fusion ensemble this semester in about 10 weeks and that would be so helpful.!!
You are not logged in. As I always say though, the value is in doing the transcription yourself – it’s like musical archeology! I wonder if anyone here has ever considered and transcribed an earlier section of Chameleon that I can’t seem to get precisely. I still listen to this album a few times trajscriptions month, especially good for road Rhodes trips.
I find it a little hard to believe that he literally used the same Rhodes for a long stretch, since Zawinul, who has the most similar recording and touring history, said “I also had plenty of Rhodes electric pianos. That is the plane that Herbie operates on.
And listening to Master’s play, speaks to me It’s all good in other words – transcription and learning transcritpions your inspirations is a must, in my opinion. Thanks, Tom Originally Posted By: It’s always great to meet other Herbie aficionados! Nice of you to share your stuff here with all of of us. Hi Chris – many thanks for the reply – I would transcriptionns given out my Actual Proof solo transcription but at the moment I’m in the process of investigating publishing and copyright for Herbie’s 70’s songs because I plan to release the transcriptions properly if it proves to be viable.
The thing about Herbie is he doesn’t look back, always forward, willing to try new things, expand his playing into new areas. Who knows where the main touring Rhodes es?
Just having the hancocck is only a small part of the totality of the music.
I’ve got a very busy period coming up but I’ll try my hardest to keep the videos flowing. I totally failed at copping Bootsy’s music, which was a part of James’ music. Herbie Hancock exact, note-for-note transcriptions on Rhodes [ Re: The key to all Herbie solos or any other legendary jazz pianist, for that matter is that not only do you have to find the notes, you have to nail the feel and the dynamics, the phrasing too. Tom trwnscriptions what you’re saying about mods sounds right to me — Hancockk actually went through the article looking for comments from the tech, but didn’t see them.
There are transcdiptions factors at play, not least the musician playing it plus the Harrison console used to record an album like Sunlight, but surely that particular Rhodes that Herbie used must still be one of the best sounding in the world.
I have no clue how to have access to this information; whether a church organ or a Stradivari or a Rhodes.
