George Benson Broadway Guitar Solo Scat Transcription PDF

Learning Jazz/Blues language from the masters in an essential part of growing as an improvisor that cannot be skipped.

George Bensons famous KILLIN'  scat/guitar solo on 'On Broadway' is loaded with stupendous musical gems to practice and absorb :

  • 1) articulation -  basically how he sculpts each note.wether it is long, (voice) short, wether it is attacked (symbol) or the end of the note is clean or it falls off!
  • 2) the language Benson uses -the  bluesy, jazzy lines  that so define his unique style.
  • 3) the rhythm. so  in the pocket, and funky
  • 4) repetition. The way Benson takes a phrase and repeats it  (example) , slightly differently, ramming home the idea if you like, but in a compelling way.

This Pdf Broadway Booklet contains the following :

a) lead sheet solo, b) solo + analysis (sample below) (the solo transcription is notated in C, Bb, Eb  keys)
