These past two weeks we’ve seen some fantastic slices of musicians playing through the transcriptions they’ve made on Soundslice. Perhaps it’s thanks to all the time at home? We’d like to salute these players here for taking their transcription practice to the next level.
Ella Fitzgerald transcription — @marcozammuto
Kudos to Marco for this cross-instrument transcription. He happens to have another equally ambitious Clifford Brown transcription for upright on his channel.
Queens of the Stone Age transcription — @rossnicoll
An iconic rock drum part. Ross nails the feel and fills here!
Django Reinhardt transcription — @wim
With a metronome clicking away on 2 and 4, Wim goes through one Django’s most-famous solos. You’ll notice that this is a cover of a transcription from the Soundslice channel of @chrisfargen — see his page for much more from Django.
Bill Evans transcription — @joliveiramusic
Swinging away and completely locked-in with Bill Evans! Awesome job, João. (We’d be remiss to not mention your recent Coltrane transcription too.)
Allan Holdsworth transcription — @cemevin
This Holdsworth transcription gets to outer space. And for the complete-opposite flavor, see Erdogan’s performance of Benson’s “Stella by Starlight.”
Thanks to everyone who shared these slices. If you like this concept, we’ve got a “Transcription cover” playlist with more where this came from. If you happen to make your own transcription cover slice, please shoot us an email to be included in the playlist.
