Very good players though! The bass player teaches at a conservatory. I think I read the first quote in Adrian Ingram's book on him.
Gene Harris plays piano and Rhyne doesn't play much on it, I can see why he was one and Search Titles Only. Thread Tools. Are we talking mostly the chord progressions, or the melodies? The composer's final copy, the way Bill Evans did it, the way Miles did it, the way some teacher said it goes I just don't get how a huge work, such as Goodrick's first effort, can be deemed "wrong," because it has some mistakes, or because it isn't exactly like this or that player thinks it should be. NOTE: I'm not saying it isn't wrong!
I'm just confused. The tunes I've learned from it seem close enough for learning purposes, anyway.
But just "wrong? Says who? I have the "6th edition" -- what's a tune in there that's wrong? Or the Hal Leonard versions? I also have the "Colorado Cookbook," which is of questionable legality, but seems well-done to me. I'm just trying to understand. Reply With Quote. The Jazz Guitar Chord Dictionary. Join Date Apr Location anchorage, alaska Posts 1, Who gets to pronounce a lead sheet "wrong"?
If Miles has a "definitive version" according to some and Bill Evans has a definitive version according to others -- which is THE definitive version? Neither - right? They're both right.
It's their interpretation. So, just because Miles was Miles, does that make his way "it" and Hal Leonard's way "wrong? Well, the chords of "Footprints" for example The last D7 - Db7 are not how it's played on any recorded version that I know of. But it's mainly minor issues of a wrong chord or note every now and then - it's still a great book!
The new Hall Leonard edition did some "corrections" and it's funny to find out that the "wrong" chords have became accepted over the course of the years amongst most players Originally Posted by Little Jay. Join Date Jan Posts 5, I don't know about people saying they're "wrong".
Mostly what I hear is something like "there are too many mistakes"; typos where the chord is just wrong and can't be explained by an alternate version, sub, or simple reharm. Most of the flat out "mistakes" are corrected in the new legal realbooks.

I think of the issue with realbooks is no so much that they're wrong, as much as they're not the only way that's right. Join Date Aug Posts 1, There might be minor differences in some melody notes but as far as the chords, they are just someone's harmonization ideas.
In the copies I have these corrections appear in the beginning. I can think of quite a few tunes with a wrong change here or there. There are even some misnamed songs in some of the "Spaces" editions and RB volumes 2 and 3 The issue is as with Footprints most guys have come to play these 'wrong' changes.
An interesting bit of 'trivia' is that there are two versions of the "non legit" Volume 2. I have one copy of the RB Volume 2 that has tons of more modern tunes and lot's of guitar-centric tunes. They also released a second volume 2. The second one contains more standard tunes.
Join Date Mar Posts In the 5th edition isn't there a missing line in Desafinado? I to play a completely different turn around on Footprints. When I was playing with another guitars a few months ago his teacher taught him exactly the same re-harmonization of Footprints as mine did.

Playing with other musicians is essential from the start. Have you taught yourself to play jazz guitar using any of these books? She made me drink a glass she had filled with old French rum, syrup, lime-juice and other good things. Dear Captain Billy: I heartily agree with you in the belief that man is a strange wild beast, and when he gets what he wanted, he wonders why he wanted it. In order to do this with your hand the thumb must be touching the finger there can be no air space between them , It works the same way with the lips. We have more insights into the ways that musicians, rather than simply being engaged in the pursuit of art or, conversely, expressing in almost-unconscious ways political or cultural imperatives, have instead been positioned by, have responded to, and sometimes have commented on ever-changing social conditions that both inspired and restricted their creativity.
Join Date Dec Posts 7, I believe that there are many mistakes in the fake books. Chord extensions really are the worst; for chord-scale soloing and chord-tone soloing they really muddle things up. The New Real Book series seems the most tested and solid. They even put the common subs above the standard changes, etc. Like theory and everything else, you really must test the charts out.
Play along to some definitive recordings and take notes. Some harmonically sophisticated tunes are filled with chords that defy standard symbols- or could be interpreted in various ways; those are always difficult to sort out by chart alone. Seems like there are lots of players who never listen to recordings of tunes and just learn them via fake books and JA Play Alongs- Footprints is one for sure.
The changes above are "correct" though they are rarely played in student combos.
