The intended way of use of this solo transcription practice manual is to show you how you can use many of the, in my videos, described solo methods on a real solo.
With the transcribed rounds of a real solo you can see the exact ways the methods are used on the tune giving you a realistic picture of how you can fit the methods described into your soloing.
Blue Bossa is a rather simple minor tune stretching over only 16 bars.
The chords are also rather easy to remember and play.
The melody is really sketching out the chords and the scales of the tune.
Mostly the tempo in which blue Bossa is played is a rather slow tempo.
All in all this makes Blue Bossa a really great starter tune to improvising when you are a beginning improviser.
In this Solo transcription I will run through the chords in a simple step analysis and go a bit into detail about the chord functions.
Here in particular how we get the V7 in minor.
And the chord progression moving a half step up.
The solo transcription consists of 5 rounds of solo on the 16 bar form of Blue Bossa.
