JOHN COLTRANE - Tablatura - Giant Steps
Here's a chord-melody arrangement of the head to ``Giant Steps''
by John Coltrane. Most of the chord voicings have been opened to
mostly fourth, tritone, and fifth intervals (so-called ``quartal
harmony''), giving a very nice ambiguous sound. These voicings are
easy to finger on the guitar and sound good. I give the chord names
in two forms: a name for a simple ``closed'' voicing, (top) and a name
for the more open or extended voicing (bottom).

To tie in with the discussion of picking technique, I pick these as
block chords using either all four fingers or the first three fingers
(no thumb, no arpeggiation). When I pick stuff like this, I do not
anchor my right hand at all, and I play over the sound hole. I can't
really solo over these changes(!), but it's fun just to play the head.


GIANT STEPS (John Coltrane): melody chords to "Head" chorus

--guitar arrangement: tcg, 1987
--4/4 // BM // Allegro (pretty quick)
--head so "jagged" and wide in its range, melody at times had to be
transposed up/down an octave. . . .
--fingerstyle or pick-&-3-fingers easiest; plectrum strums'll work
if yu' deaden "x" strings with sides of adjacent fingers. . . .
--note durations:
/ quarter note
/- eighth note /-. dotted eighth
/= sixteenth note
/_/_/_/ tied notes
[hey, _I_ understand it!--I think. . . .]
