Bb Lead Sheets

kalestilezkalestilez Long Beach, CA✭✭
edited October 2012 in Woodwinds
Hi everyone. I'd like to start a thread dedicated to posting lead sheets that have been transcribed to the key of Bb. Most songs aren't too much trouble to learn by ear, but every once in a while I come across complex tunes that would be a heck of a lot nicer to play with a lead sheet. By the way, congrats on getting the Woodwinds section back! Lets keep it active! Viva la Clarinette!

  • I think it is a great thing we have started. One of the members here has a number of Bb lead sheets that he has promised to post soon.

    I am working on a few transpositions that I will post as soon as done.

    can we upload image files that will get displayed in the thread ?
    or do we need to host the images externally ?

    I have a sizable collection of Bb charts, which I will post after my return from France next week.

    image test post:

    Here's something I made to show how much of Charlie Parker's Omnibook is based on other tunes.

    For GJ saxophonists & clarinettists, note that there are many Parker solos based on 'Honeysuckle rose', 'I got rhythm', 12 bar blues, etc.
    So plenty of licks & riffs for borrowing ;-)

    normally I'd recommend getting the B-flat version of the Omnibook, but the GJ keys are often different from those played by the be-bop guys. So transpose :wink:

    Next up - some GJ lead sheets in Bb

  • Note that lots of guitar players to Si Tu SAvais in Bm which Andy's C# minor transcription is perfectamundo although original music that I have shows it in Cm and I will post that and my Dm transcription as soon as I can figure out how best to post it :oops:

    I practice it in all 3 keys (I really need the practice) :D

    Swing Gitan for Bb instruments .
    p.s. ignore that tempo marking!

    I just got my piano talking to Garageband :D - makes keying-in music a lot easier.

    so - any requests for GJ heads in Bb ??

    more "soon" lol :mrgreen:

    p.s. on sax you may want to use LH side D for the 4th line D's,
    p.p.s on clarinet keep your choice of C# key down , either LH or RH, for all of bar 16
