If you're not familiar with the album Stan Getz and the Oscar Peterson Trio, please check it out immediately! It's one of my favorite albums of all time, and features "The Sound" Stan Getz backed by the most swinging band in history, the Oscar Peterson Trio (Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Ray Brown on bass).
The last track Blues For Herky is a fun 12-bar blues in C that contains some great language for guitar. You will find the first three choruses of the guitar part transcribed, followed by the three-chorus saxophone solo. All six of those choruses are written out in the key of C for guitar and the key of D for Bb instruments in a four-page PDF.
Head over to my transcriptions page to find this PDF along with many others for your study and enjoyment. Thank you.
