I transcribed this track because I think it puts to rest all claims  
that 
Manring is purly a techician. The playng on this track is some of  
the most 
lyrical work I've heard on any instrument. There are very few  
techically 
difficult parts, but the note choice is inspired, and some of the  
intervals 
truly educational.

I think of this track as a Jaco tribute (c.f. "A remark you made").  
I'd be 
interested if anyone could confirm or drefuteny this interpretation.

Notes

1)      The first verse is pretty easy. The main thing that  
requires comment
is the slide at the end of the 7th bar. As I've been playing this  
on fretted
I've notated it as a ghost bend - fret 19, and bend it to 20 before  
sounding
the note, then drop it down and back again. Note that in the  
decending phrase
(13-14 and 27-28) the trill on the D string is different the second  
time.

2)      The chorus is trivial, but illustrates some interesting  
inversions.

3)      The second verse is by far the hardest section. Appologies  
for the 
poor notation of phrasing here - carefull analysis of the album is  
a must. 

4)      The outro section is straight forwards. The bass shifts to  
the solo 
after the second time through the theme. Again phrasing is  
critical. The 
only dificult phrase is the run in the 5th bar (any corrections to  
this would 
be appreciated). The second half of the outro is notated 1 octave  
down, to 
fit on a standard bass.


Hope you enjoy this transcription...
