For You and a Friend

Holiday wishes to everyone. With Emily in mind and celebrations near we offer a transcription to one of the very few holiday songs Emily arranged for guitar, the Claude Thornhill composition, Snowfall.

The studio version appears on the album, East To Wes but the transcription is taken from a 1989 live performance at the Manchester Craftsmen Guild - a duet for jazz guitar and bass from master transcriptionist, musician and teacher, Wolfgang Kulawik. How lucky we are to have his service for challenging pieces such as this one was, so we may continue to share Emily's music to students and fans across the globe.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Have A Wonderful Holiday, In Your Own Sweet Way

Thanks to Tom Cope's unrelenting transcription enthusiasm, we once again have a reason to work a little Emily into our repertoire, this time with her arrangement of the Brubeck tune, In Your Own Sweet Way, which first appeared on her 1982 album, Take Two. It's a great version, with mellow tones and actually has a Christmas feel, what perfect timing. Happy holidays to all, be safe and enjoy the season.

D Natural Blues In Bb

DNaturalFeatureFor those who have been patiently waiting for a transcription of Emily's spin on Wes Montgomery's D Natural Blues played at the beginning of her lesson video Bebop & Swing Guitar, two versions have come to the rescue. Through Watch and Learn Inc, Guy Fenocchi breaks down the techniques and methods that make this blues song swing so sweetly. fvg2For a very small and reasonable fee you can download the full lesson, over 16 minutes, plus more importantly you also receive the notation and tab for learning the head, a great bonus for eager students. Guy really knows his business, his teaching style is easy going but very direct and instinctual. You can find more of his lessons and examples at FreeGuitarVideos.com. Also, don't forget to check out Guy's own incredible playing of this song and others at Youtube. We are in great appreciation that he took the time to provide this lesson on one of the more popular requests for Emily's short performances. Thanks Guy!

And in perfect timing, for players who enjoy power tab versions, long time Emily fan Clive Blackman has graciously shared his transcription of Emily's Bb Blues in pdf form as well. Between these two very helpful guides and video lesson, if B flat blues has been on your list of songs to learn, there's never been a better time to dig in.
