Stanton Moore Solo Study #2

Artist: Stanton Moore
Track: Maple Plank
Live performance with the Stanton Moore Trio

Here’s another transcription of the great Stanton Moore, this time from a live performance of Maple Plank with his trio. He’s using the melody from the 32 bar AABA structure as a reference point for his phrasing so memorise the melody and structure first, then sing along to the solo. Stanton pulls out a lot of ‘tricks’ here including a very tricky one-handed-roll, a finger slide pitch bend and a drum head elbow press. Also, be aware of the stab on beat 4 of the 8th bar of the B section.
Check out the video and transcription below:

The transcription starts from 0:08
