    Someone above mentioned buying the Mel Bay book as a source for a transcription of Zhivago. But I saw in a review of the music books one can find at Amazon criticism that the transcriptions aren't accurate. Can anyone on this forum speak to that? I would be interested in buying the books if I thought the guitar parts were fairly nailed down.

  7. I believe this has been discussed in another thread. I remember poporad commenting on poor enharmonic misspellings being one of a few glaring issues. Poporad also did the music engraving for Ben monder's book ( which is excellent ) -among other exhaustive work teaching playing reading and writing , I'd hold his thoughts on these matters in high regard.

    I own the Mel Bay book of Kurt's transcriptions. I don't remember looking at Zhiavago, but I looked through most of this book just because I was astonished at how inaccurate the transcriptions were. I honestly don't know how Corey Christiansen (credited as the transcriber) was allowed to have this thing published. It's embarrassing how many mistakes there are and most of the time it's a pretty basic mistake. The chord symbol analysis is wrong too. If you're a competently educated musician, you can at least use the materials in the book to get a starting point and then transcribe the rest yourself.

    Thanks a lot geetarted! Now I got it.

    Regarding the transcriptions book, I was thinking about getting, but after your comments, I think I'll pass...

    `Has anybody transcribed the interlude in Zhivago after Kurt's solo on the big band version? The drums drop out, and there's an arrangement of horns accompanying him as he plays a variation on the melody. I'm looking for the horn parts in particular, as I want to perform this version.
