    Hi,

    This is a really fun tune that sits so well on the guitar. I created a lead sheet for it... Same changes as "Topsy" (if you already know Topsy this will be easy to learn, and if you don't then learn Topsy also - two songs for the price of one).

    Let me know what you think

    edit 9/10/2015, some 5 years later... I corrected the typo in measure 9, the chord should be Bb7, not Db7

    Thanks, cool tune! Are you sure about the last chord in the B section being a major 7 and not dominant? I havn't listened to it in a while, but just seems a little odd.

    Yeah, I love that tune. First heard it back in the 60's. Stuck in my head, but I couldn't remember what it was. I played it for Attila Zoller about 15 years ago and asked him if he knew what it was. He said, "Oh yeah, that's a Barney Kessel thing!" I play it all the time, and now I have it on CD!

    Another current thread is about Herb Ellis's "Pickley Wickly" (-the title gets spelled a few different ways and I'm not sure which one to use.) Anyway, the progression is pretty much the same as "Topsy" and Barney's "Salute to Charlie Christian" (-though "Pickley" has a slightly different bridge).

    Good to know all three, no? ;o)

    Fantastic.
    In saying thank you, in case you have nos heard/seen this Barney Kessell in 1944 with Lester Young. Barney gets to blow at about 7:30 but don't skip ahead as every second is golden.

    Jordan Klemons recently transcribed the first Lester improv which is how I heard the video, I think I will transcribe this also. Enjoy:

    Oops, I see a mistake on my pdf, measure 10 the chord is indicated as a Db7, it should be a Bb7. Some last minute editing...

    I made the Bb7 (not Db7) correction at measure 9 and posted a link to the pdf in the first post.

    I made this for the "Pickley Wickly" thread but thought it might fit here too---the way I play the bridge of this tune.

    Chords: Bb7 / Bb7 / Eb7 / Eb7 / Ab7 / Ab7 / Db / Cm7b5 F7 /

    Sorry for asking a (probably) really dumb question, but how can I find a lead sheet for "Salute to Charlie Christian"?
