I am starting to transcribe a new solo, “Out of Nowhere” as played by Charlie Parker. To be more accurate, it is truly him playing the head with great embellishments. The phrasing, the way Bird plays around with the time, and the mood of this rendition all captivate me. I decided to create a very comprehensive study of this solo. I have outlined the steps of this project in my practice log.
This is a tedious process but I think it will be one with great rewards. I will post a YouTube video once I become more comfortable playing the tune and the solo. I will also post a .PDF of the solo on my Transcriptions Page (Step #5).
