Rather tab, the main guitar parts. So all notes:P
Those 2 tunes, tenderly and handle with care. Guitar pro whutever.

Dont need rythm or timing in the tab itself, just notes will be perfect.

you could get others to transcribe it, but dont you think that the band would be better suited with you doing it yourself?

I bet they wont care if you miss some notes.. if they can see you are working hard now, they will see past that, because they now know you'll continue to work hard and eventually get them (or even do your own thing in them, perhaps improving them?)

either way, you will have gained some transcribing knowledge, which is awesome btw.. wink.gif

Sorry Jesse, I really feel bad man .. Wish I could help. I really dont have the transcribing skills at the moment .. If i did it, you probably wont get the gig, so it's best I stay away ... Maybe in the future ... All the best mate !!

If you want it bad enough, sacrifice a few of your other chores/activities in the next days to spend time on this. It will be well worth it.

And if you cant transcribe all of them for whatever reason, just be honest with them, they'll appreciate it.. if they have a quarter of a sensible brain.

I mean, it might be better but who cares at the moment? I need to audition and getting in is the only thing that counts, not the little devil on my shoulder saying ooooohh you didnt do those 2 songs completely by yourself .

I mean, I can barely hear the chords played let alone transcribe em.
I still want help. Thank,s

I will try to give some help tonight Jesse, at least some pointers, have to do some work in the daytime. But I also think that they don't expect You to play exactly as the old player, since this is blues and You are supposed to do Your "own" thing out of it. Beeing positive and adopt the other players ideas is most important here - when I'm looking for band members, I really appreciate a good laugh, a good coomon feeling and the same sense for music rather than technical skills - it can always be learned, but beeing a good person and a true band member is way harder....

Here it tunes in D..... And "Tenderly" tunes in F, which seems to be right according to the notes the guitar player plays..... Remember that this is harmonica based music, so the tunes are probably in the harmonica players best key's..... (or harmonicas.. tongue.gif )

Here's the transcription Jesse, Im doing it the old-fashion way since its a real quicky, so I hope You can read it.... btw. most musicians do it this way (they aren't still used to computers), so You will probably see a LOT worser than this in Your future career... tongue.gif

Some notes:
The song is actually based on just two chords (F7 and Bb7) over 16 bars with some solos and interludes between the choruses and in the intro.
The harmonica plays some sort of melody in the beginning and in the first interlude.
The guitar part is very easy, and emphasizes the 2 and 4 of the beat most of the time. In the intro the guitar dubs the bass and it is probably two guitar tracks - one dubbing the bass and one playing the off-beat, but it can easily be played in the same pattern. (see the end of last page) Imo. the guitar can be made a lot better with some fantasy, and You can easily make some patterns of Your own....
The solo just implies the major pentatonic of F with some blue notes here and there. ( Ab and B which is in fact a lowered C....) You will do fine with just the F-blues scale however.....

The form of the song is:

Intro
Chorus
Interlude (Harmonica)
Chorus
Harmonica solo on Chorus (16 bars)
Chorus
Guitar Solo (32 bars)
Chorus + Outro and ritardando

This is a very simple song, and as I seen You play "Rude Mood" today, this would not cause You any problem......

If there's anything you want to ask... just shoot.....
... and best of luck of course!!!

EDIT: If You need better resolution, just PM me Your mail, and I send some full resolution copies.....

So Do I! I figured out the F chord wasnt a F7... F7 with an F on d string.
Also figured out the ehm, bass harmony and the solo by ear:) Ready for handle with care.

I know it's in D, I got some of the licks, and the chords are close but a note needs to be changed here and theere. I can now play a solo thats about 79 % similar. I know what notes are used and what notes he ends on.

Got the feeling its more of a 12 bar blues in D using chords with added 9's n stuff
