Picks and Pans (John Scofield's solo) - John Scofield

Following on from my transcriptions of his solos on ‘Techno’ and ‘Protocol’ it seems right to post the final up-tempo solo from Sco’s 1986 Gramavision release ‘Still Warm’. 179 more words

Techno (John Scofield's Solo) - John Scofield

Time for another John Scofield solo transcription! This one’s from my favorite early period Sco release, 1986s ‘Still Warm’, more specifically the first track ‘Techno’. Like another solo from this record which I’ve transcribed, ‘Protocol’, the harmonic framework for the solos is fairly simple – in this case, just Bbm7 and Db9. 110 more words
