Hi Scott,

I have always loved your playing and Tribal Tech's music, to the point that I
quit playing guitar for quite a while because I didn't see any point in polluting
the world with my own noise when there are guys like tribal tech that play
a kind of music I could never come up with, no matter how hard I tried.
Well, getting older, I am not that strict anymore. Wink
Recently I read in an interview with a German guitar player magazine that
you have been playing Herbie Hancock's "Actual Proof" since you were a kid.
That is again quite frustrating for me. I have always liked this tune, and I
have a real book lead sheet. I know how to play many standard tunes, II-V-I's, have exposed myself to a lot of Jazz harmony on the level of "Joe Pass Guitar Style", but my concepts are probably way too old-fashioned. With this tune (as well as with most other stuff from Tribal Tech, or e.g. from Miles Davis or Zawinul) I am nevertheless totally lost.
There seems to be a large harmonic gap between standard Jazz tunes like "All the things you are" or "Have you met Miss Jones" and the harmonic concepts of modern fusion. But I suspect that the modern fusion compositions also follow some set of rules derived from e.g. major, melodic and harmonic minor, diminished scales analysis.
Q: Is there a transcription/arrangement/analysis available for "Actual Proof"?
Q: Based on your teaching experience, can you recommend an accessible source for analyzing and understanding the harmonic skeleton of modern fusion compositions?

Thanks for reading that far
.
Cheers from Austria, Andy
