Transcription: The Comeback
Tune: The Comeback
"The Comeback" is a twelve bar blues that features singer Joe Williams. The arrangement opens with 24 bars of just the rhythm section. Freddie's part primarily consists of two-note tritone voicings, played on the D string and G string, and one note voicings, played on the D string. In measure 10, the perfect fifth voicing on beats 1 and 2 is an uncommon choice for Freddie. Measure 16 is noteworthy for the moving lower line (A-Bb-C-A) and the stationary top line (Eb).
For instruction on how to play one note and two note voicings, see: http://www.freddiegreen.org/technique.html
