McCoy Tyner's Passion Dance Solo Transcribed For Guitar

Here's a link to some work I have been doing with a solo by McCoy Tyner on his original "Passion Dance". I have gotten a little more organized. The links include the original hand-written transcription with some harmonic notes, the TAB, and play-along tracks at different speeds.

Music lessons at all levels, beginner to advanced:

If you are looking for music lessons with a very patient and relaxed teacher, I have over 40 years of teaching experience. Study guitar, piano, drums, bass, voice or sax at your own pace and learn what you want to play. Studies can include blues, rock, folk, country, jazz, latin, funk and reggae styles, theory if you want it, reading if you want it, multiple instrument study if you want it, and one easy stop if you have more than one person studying different instruments (parents, bring your kids!). Find out more about my online teaching at http://www.onlinelessonswithfrank.com or contact me at frank@franksinger.com to inquire about local lessons in the Erie PA area of the U.S.

Friday Night Jazz at the Anchor In 2015-2016 Season and Schedule

The eagerly awaited return of Friday Night Jazz at the Anchor In is within sight at last. JD Jazz and Blues will get the Fall Season rolling on October 2, keeping the fun and entertainment going while you enjoy the great full dinner and appetizer menu, full bar and excellent service that the In has to offer. The hours for music will be from 6 to 9 pm, with doors opening at 5 pm and staying open until 10 pm.
 
The Anchor In is the downstairs level of the Oasis Pub on 3122 West Lake Road in Erie, Pennsylvania. The club has a free parking lot which leads right to the club's entrances, the door to the right leading down to the In. There's no smoking permitted within the building's walls, and unless specified there's no cover charge.
 
To be sure you have a table for dinner, call 814-833-1212 for reservations.
 
The Fall lineup is well under way, presenting some of our favorite artists from the region. After JD opens the season, bari-sax player Bruce Johnstone, Buffalo trumpeter Tim Clarke, saxophonist and comedian Stan Bialomizy and our favorite chocolate maker from Romolo Chocolates, bassist Tony Stefanelli complete October's Frank Singer Duos. November begins with Erie bassist, promoter and community leader Stephen Trohoske and Misery Bay Big Band director, trumpeter Jeff Gibbens joining Frank, each for an evening.
 
Erie favorite pianist James Madden takes over the evening on November 20, joined by bassist Ed Hallahan. JD Jazz and Blues close out November on Thanksgiving weekend, so plan on doing a little partying with us as we work off those turkey comas. They do serve coffee at the Anchor In as well, in case you need some...
 
Future events include plans to have Richie Cole return, and we are in negotiation with some other artists who have passed this way recently and want to return for more fun!
 
October:
2: JD Jazz and Blues
9: Frank Singer Duo wsg Bruce Johnstone
16: Frank Singer Duo wsg Tim Clarke

Unsolicited Commentary from a Friend & Fellow Musician

Gentlemen,

I happened to be in NYC last weekend. Saturday night I was able to see
Mulgrew Miller with a sextet at the Jazz Standard. It was a very enjoyable
and inspiring show. But, it made me think.....

Yeah - these are world class musicians. But, I know guys at home on
the same level. Holy smokes - I get to work with guys on this level at
home.

Thanks! It's good to know you. It's good to enjoy your talents and to
even be part of that music making experience on occasion.

Just tho't I'd tell ya.
