Continuing on my goal to transcribe and learn a tune each month, I set Groovin’ High aside and transcribed the head of Parker’s Confirmation this weekend. On github as usual.

I took a quick scan of the internets and my transcription is pretty close, at least as far as the rhythms go. There are a few places where we disagree on notes, on some of the 16th triplets and a few bars in the bridge. I’ll have another listen and fix these things up as I have time.

The intro comes from Al Haig on whichever version I happened to have. I worked it out in front of the piano and can just play it with my terrible piano skills. Not sure about the chromatic descending minor chords since I can really only hear the bass notes on the recording but it doesn’t sound too bad.

Anyway, onto the solos…
