Alf Ritchie's Balanced Incline
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:29:45 PM »

Even without the basses I'm finding this tune - on 'Banquet of Boxes' - very hard to play.  When I can't pick up a tune by ear I normally dive for the music but haven't found anything yet.   Is anyone aware of a transcription in any format?

That's great - thanks very much.  I was missing a lot struggling to do it by ear!

I think all of the crotchets need to be played staccato to get the rythmn to sound more like the recording so I've messed about a bit with Geoff's transcription (hope you don't mind!) and added (suggested) chords although I hear only bass notes without chords in Simon's playing.
