    hey y'all. here's my latest tranny. trane's "my shining hour" from his "coltrane jazz" record. interesting stuff, kind of right in between more "modern" and "classic" period for him.

    i found it interesting how there are often quick 16th and even 32nd notes (you have to really listen for them) interspersed within what sounds like a straight up 8th note line. great study in how to make that happen smoothly on guitar.

    also some cool things where he anticipates changes. especially dig the F Major to F minor changes. ALWAYS plays F minor over the F Major.

    Anyways, enjoy. Scribd link below...
