A few tips

This picture is just an extract of the whole score. Download the Guitar Pro file above to get the full transcription of the song played in the video.

The first note should be played with the thumb, a bit like Hendrix. It’s true that the barre technique is not often used for playing jazz chords.

Please note that the eight notes should be played with a triplet feel:

The triplet feel means that you have to make the first of the two eighth notes last longer.

Note that if you prefer to decipher chords with diagrams, open the score in Guitar Pro and click on one of the notes of the chord and press A on your keyboard.

The chord window will bring up a diagram with the fingerings as well as many inversions of the chord.

    Following up on Gerd’s comment I have always found it very hard to get realistic guitar sounds from GP, in particular mellow jazz tones. The instrument always sounds vaguely like a harpsichord. Emanuel’s blues in A is a good example. Since I mostly use GP as a learning tool, this isn’t a huge issue. But it does interfere with the level of personal enjoyment I get.

    @Gerd,
    The sound is different because, in the video, we’re hearing Emanuel’s actual guitar sound from his amp, recorded for the video, whereas, in GuitarPro, we’re hearing a MIDI sound produced in the software, not a recording of Emanuel’s playing.

    Hallo again,
    By the way – GP 7.5 is a cool tool – but there is a big difference between the the video-sound and the GP-sound and I ask myself why?
