This is the full transcription of Paul Chambers’ bass line on the 1957 John Coltrane album Blue Train title track.
It’s one of my favorite cuts of all time. Why?
Because every instrument's solo is full of wisdom and music lessons.
I was just as helped to learn the piano solo as the bass line, and... well, you can listen for yourself. It's a gem!
Really fun to play along with the original album and pretend you're Paul. This is the bass line to all 26 choruses.
