Transcription: Love Jumped Out
Composer: Buck Clayton
Comments: This ten measure example illustrates how Freddie Green would
create a counter-melody in his rhythm part. The first two measures lead
up to the eight bar bridge which starts on an F major chord. The majority
of the notes are played on the 4th string. If an upper note is added on
beat 2 or 4, play the added note on the 3rd string.
One exception is measure 5. This is easier to play if the "G"
is played on the 5th string with the "E" on the 3rd string.
The "A" notes on beats 3 and 4 are played on the 4th string.
For instructions on how to play "one note" and "two note"
Freddie Green chords, see my article written for Down Beat entitled: Distilling
Big Band Guitar: The Essence of Freddie Green.
