I totally agree. I have seen it on the Tribute video and the Royal Albert Hall video. The man in the Tribute video plays it much better than the one on the Royal Albert Hall. However, the piece is really very beautiful.
Weng, The keyboard solo is not published. I can play the solo pretty close to the way Ming does it, but it would take way too long to transcribe. I'm not even sure what all the notes are when I play--my fingers just do it.
The main run, I believe is a variation on the C minor 7th. (C-Eb-G-Bb-C) But the scale that he uses is based on that. It is C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C.......... And it is repeated, changing the scale from a C minor 7th to an Eb 6th by changing the octave or chord in the left hand. I THINK------THINK that is right, and PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong.
Drew, I'm not sure which run you are talking about, but I'm sure you are somewhat correct about the use of Cm7. Honestly, I'm not even sure what notes I play when I do the fast runs. It goes by so fast! But my fingers seem to know what they're doing!
WHEW! I gotta agree, Ming's solo is awesome in that song.
Hey Aaron, I was wondering, are there computer programs now that transcribe the notes? Or is that something not readily accesible or maybe that solo is something that might be too fast for a computer to transcribe?
"We are not human beings having a temporary spiritual experience.....We are spiritual beings having a temporary human experience".
A computer can definitely transcribe it. Nothing is too fast for a computer...it can pick up anything really accurately. The problem is, it's almost too accurate. When you're dealing with something that's more improvisatory in nature, the music would come out unreadable. All the notes would certainly be there, but the rhythm would be messed up.
