If I Should Lose You – Grant Green

This is the first guitar transcription I’ve posted here, but I don’t think it will be the last.  Although I work more on piano than guitar, I’ve played guitar most of my life.

Of course there are a lot of great jazz guitarists.  At his best, I absolutely love Grant Green.  His tone is creamy, his lines are clear and musical, and he draws strongly from the common Bebop vocabulary.  I decided to transcribe this particular track because I thought the solo was a great jazz guitar study piece – very musical and mostly harmonically specific.

FYI this performance is in Bbm, which is not in the “usual” key.  The Real Bookshave this tune in Gm.
