     Freddie Freeloader         by Miles Davis
                    from Kind of Blue

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the main melody to the song, played slow and
     smooth with no stacotto.

     repeat--it is about 12 measures long and is actually
played like a chorous part where the solos would be the
verses.   The song stays in this same pattern throught
the entire song though.


Here are the first few measures to the piano solo to give
an idea how it goes.
-------------------------------------------/10----------------------------|
--------10-11-10--------13-----------------12-----------------------------|

(These parts below are actually played an octave higher)

                                                  (approx 12 bars)

--14-15------------------------------------------|

   That's as far as I got.  All of the solo parts are basically
in the same key/mode of Am or C.  This should give an
idea of how the solos are played.  Enjoy

Well, it's pretty good, just in a different key than the original recording. If you want to play in the original key, just move it down two frets.
