    I am also desperately searching for a chart/lead sheet for Deep Song. Has anyone come across it on a fake book?

    One thing's for sure, Kurt has it and maybe...

    Why dont you transcribe it?

    The old trusty "why dont you transcribe it?"...

    I think the answer isn't that simple. Transcribing is, of course, a great practice for musical education but so many reasons can be listed to explain why some people need well-written transcriptions. To be short and to the point, I will just say that novice players'/arrangers' ears have a tendency to hear the positions or shapes which they are comfortable with. That's why, a correct transcription of a specific arrangement provides a challenging and entertaining educational material.

    I assure you I will share it (by legal means) when I have my own transcription and the courage to share it.

    Yeah, what Kutu said, I can get through it but feel I'm generalizing things. Would love an accurate notation of the chords (melody is obviously pretty easy here), whatever is legal. BTW - Check out Billy Holiday singing this if you have not already, WOW!

    I started transcribing Kurt's guitar arrangement in 2005. I think I got about 12 bars in and never continued. Gorgeous stuff though.

    Well, all Kurt plays is basically a pure transcription of the Billie Holiday version - arranged for guitar.

    @eSkills you are right:

    I love both : )

    Kurt said that when he wants to play a "new standard" he try his best to listen to many different versions and also he learn the words of the tune.

    All the Best
