Bebop Guitar — Transcriptions

March 14, 2007

Nicolai Foss

Thomas Phleps, a Professor of “Musikwissenschaft” (no idea what the English equivalent is), has transcribed 25 classic bebop guitar solos, by the likes of Jimmy Raney, Chuck Wayne, Bill DeArango, Arv Garrison, and others (including Tiny Grimes!). They can be found here. So, if you are looking for new ideas, lift some from the Early Masters.

Phleps also has a Bill DeArango discography here, which is very useful for locating the works of this seldomly recorded, much overlooked, but excellent bop guitarist.
