To listen and get the transcription, play video below, accompanied by an all-star band live in Los Angeles. If you like it, pay what you want to download the 5-page PDF. The transcription starts with the melody, then picks up with my solo 3 minutes in after Bruce Forman’s guitar solo.
Duncan is a multi-talented musician and part of the team at ElectricViolinShop I recommend EVS as the best source for “All Things Electric Strings”.
“I’ve loved listening to this particular recording for years and recently decided to transcribe it so I could analyze the changes and soloing. Of course, once it was transcribed I had to try to play along–easier said than done. Took me a while and some really slow metronome practice to be able to keep up with (Christian’s) solos, which are pretty masterfully conceived and performed. The first 2:03 is the head; I cut a really nice guitar solo by Bruce Forman because it’s not part of the violin transcription; the violin solo sections come in at 2:10.
It’s a longstanding favorite of mine. The groove, melody, and chord progression all lie nicely on the violin.
