Blue Bossa Solo Transcription


Guitarist and instructor Andrew Townend shares his transcription of Emily's Blue Bossa solo, that she plays in her Advanced Latin Improvisation Video. It's a great solo of continuous eighth notes over the changes, and her feel and blues phrasing are excellent!

Andrew has more jazz transcriptions, teaching advice and information on his website AndrewTownendMusic.com -- Thanks to him for providing this valuable lesson for all students of Emily.
