There are a suprising amount of good jazz guitar transcriptions available freely on the web. Here’s my pick:

  • Adam Good’s site includes transcriptions by Kenny Burrell, Paul Schofield and Jim Hall, amongst others.
  • Brent Stunztner’s site is a reflection of his passion for jazz guitar, this is top-notch. Grant Green, Barney Kassell and Wes Montgomery all feature here, plus lots and lots of others.
  • Khan’s Corner: impressive array here, including accompanying MP3′s of relevant recordings: always handy.
  • An incredible selection of John McLaughlin transcriptions here on Massimo Morrone’s site.
  • Charles Schneider maintains this site for EJMA it’s a veritable Gold-Mine of Transcriptions from a massive number of artists.
  • The OBM Jazz site has some excellent transcriptions of Wes Montgomery, Jim Hill and others
  • Ben McDonnell’s site includes transcriptions by Guthrie Govan and Russell Malone, amongst others….
  • …meanwhile Martin Lane’s page is devoted soley to Bill Frissell.
  • Petri Krzywacki’s site has a couple of non-guitar trascriptions, but most of them are clearly for the instrument that he plays. Excellent quality these.
  • Martin Lane as some very fine Bill Fissell transcriptions on his geocities site.
  • Jens Larsen is a guitarist from the Netherlands, and he’s got some goodies on his site, thanks Jens!

Right here is the right site for anyone who would like to
find out about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue
with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).

You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been written about for years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
