Yooper - Thanks for the thanks. I have "Ave Maria", two versions, Schubert and Gounod, in the pipeline. If you're thinking of another one, please let me know.

I transcribed Gounod's "Ave Maria" here.  Schubert's "Ave Maria" would be far more interesting and difficult, I think!

Bruce, your work is awesome.

Re: Non-traditional music

Hi Guys!

At the usual place,

http://www.4shared.com/dir/5131393/30e8 … iSolo.html

All solos this time:
Ave Maria - Gounod, Ave Maria - Schubert, Caro Nome - Verdi, Marche Slav - Tchaikovsky, Nocturne - Tchaikovsky, Panis Angelicus - Franck, Pavan pour une Infante Defunte - Ravel, Pilgrim's Chorus - Wagner, and, Symphony No.6 Theme - Tchaikovsky.

Thanks to Seth, Yooper, and Tairaku for title suggestions.
Geni and Darren - feedback is always appreciated, thanks much.
Darren, your transcription of Ave Maria looks good, and your choice of key is interesting too!

Oh, and Edosan was kind enough to point out an error (thank you!) in one of the earlier titles. Unfortunately, I've forgotten which one, but the file has been corrected.

later,
Bruce

Wow, I just took a look.  Thanks for the great resource, Bruce.  I very much look forward to trying out some of the pieces as I don't play Western staff notation on shakuhachi...

Are there recordings of these tunes available to use as reference points? And are they free rhythm a la honkyoku or do they have strict rhythm?

Re: Non-traditional music

Tairaku,
These are folksongs from and, to the best of my knowledge, and memories of hearing my Korean-descendant  students sing them, they're pretty regular in pulse, although tempo may vary. Of course, as practicing musicians, if one were to create an extreme interpretation on the slow side, I don't see how it could be a bad thing, at least the attempt, anyway. Sorry, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of recordings.

Re: Non-traditional music

hey Bruce,

Could you make one for any Depeche Mode or The Cure song (assuming you know, or like those bands).  Songs like, personal jesus, policy of truth, black celebration, etc. would be cool.  Or stuff from the Disintegration album, like fascination street.  I would get a kick out of learning some of those tunes (or parts of them) in kinko notation.  Just a wacky idea

Re: Non-traditional music

If I knew how to read shakuhachi notation I'd request the Mario Bros. theme, learn it, videotape it, and post it on youtube and get hundreds of thousands of views smile

Re: Non-traditional music

Hi Lorka! - good idea, but those tunes are all copyrighted, and I doubt seriously I could get "Permission to Arrange", or, get permission for a nominal sum (like free!). 8^) All of my title sources are in the Public Domain.

Hi radiOgnome - same as for Lorka, but thanks for writing.

Of course, if one of the band members is a shakuhachiador, he might go for the idea. Problem is, the song no longer belongs to the band, it belongs to the publisher.

Tairaku (as usual) has the best idea.
