Why I don’t always write down what I transcribe
Hi aliocha. I just saw your great performance of prince song. Sometimes it snows in april. Beautiful!!!!
Is there a chance to get the score of your playing!?
Greetings from berlin
hi Frank, thanx for your kind words, I don’t write down any my own arrangements as it’s half improvised most of the time, so I don’t spend time transcribing myself afterwards 🙂
Hey, I just watched your between the bar cover… wow. I read the comments and, I know it’s been a few years since you posted it. But if you had anything left about how to play it, It would be very appreciated. I’m a huge fan of Elliot and, he acrually held me when I was a baby. Anyways, thanks again. Rock on! 🤟
I just used a basic lead sheet and made my version on the go without notating anything, I was tuned to DADGAD … I think once you know the tuning, by looking at the video you can pick up most of what I’m doing, it’s not that complicated 🙂
best of luck, A.
Hey, The list of songs played by you are exactly what I´m interested in especially Hollywood Fats.Unfortunately “Lonesome” is not on the list.I just wanted to know if you could possibly make a tab out of the intro of a song I found on youtube played by kid ramos (–> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAh1CCVvPxk ).
Thanks in advance, best regard byeeeeeeeeee
You need to provide a simple way to use the shopping cart to purchase multiple transcriptions. I gave up and you are missing a sale. I cannot figure a way to purchase 3 transcriptions and add them to the shopping cart. Suggest you try and see how confusing it is.
hi Robert, if you keep the fist PayPal window open while you keep choosing links from the website, it adds up in your basket, I had no problem when I just tried … hope it makes sense ?
all the best
Hi Aliocha, thank you so much for all your hard work. I was wondering if you take request. If so, I would love to see the transcription to Tiny Grimes – Call of the Wild, off of “Tiny Grimes and his Rockin Highlanders”
hi Scott, thanx for your kind words.
that’s a cool tune and a great solo by Tiny Grimes indeed … I do have a list of people’s wishes, it may take some times until I get to it, no promises …
the surest way to get that transcription is to order it (as described on this page), it will then be at the top of my list and be done within a week generally. It’s up to you 🙂
Hey Aliocha— I’ve bought some transcriptions from your great collection. They are excellent and a great education in this wonderful music. This music is not easy but it’s so great to play and sounds so wonderful. There is one guitarist I would like to see you make transcriptions for —- Freddie King. There are some really great old Freddie King tunes that are not as well known as his more famous songs. He has many great instrumentals and is one of the all-time greatest guitar players. Thanks for your great music!
thanx for the kind words Paul.
yes I love the early instrumentals from Freddie King. I think there are quite a few that people play and posted online, so that’s why I’ve never been able to pick one so far … any suggestion ?
Hi, do a transcription of this piece, and you’ll sell a lot! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-MX26rOpZU
ah ah the author already made a lengthy video explaining this tune, if that’s not enough, contact me in private and I’ll give you an estimate for the transcription, made just for you.
I would like an estimate for transcribing this version of “Chicken Shack” https://youtu.be/1gJulrDOhoM
send me an email at email@example.com so I can give you a precise estimate, thanx for your interest

Check out Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters, “T-Bone Boogie”. I think you’ll dig it.

OH MAN!!!! I stumbled upon your site. I’ve been playing guitar for 40 years and really trying to improve my improve skills in jump. I’m going to start to work on what you have here and see where we go from there. I may request a transcription but thanks you for your skills and appreciation for the all too often overlooked greats of the past!
happy to help !
