Transcription: I Got Rhythm
Composer: George & Ira Gershwin
This thirty-seven measure transcription illustrates Freddie playing "one note chords" on the Gershwin standard, "I Got Rhythm". The guitar is quite audible on this live recording made by Radio Europe 1 at the Antibes Jazz Festival in Juan les Pins, France.
There are no surprises; Freddie's part stays within the range of a perfect fifth, F to C. The transcribed notes show only the pitches that can be definitely discerned.
For details on playing "one note chords", see the Lessons and Techniques section of this web site.
