    Default Maiden Voyage - Herbie Hancock

    This chart for Maiden Voyage uses the syncopated bass line of the original.

    shinr1,

    It was an excellent idea to put the piano chords in for backing horn players. I didn't because I'm a pianist and only use the bass and drums.

    However, it's not quite playing correctly. It's nice to have the chords ring rather than be cut off, but unfortunately if you leave a space after a chord iReal Pro will from time to time stick in a repeated chord and even a chord that is syncopated off the beat. So you need an N.C. in every blank space that follows a chord.

    Your 4/4 time in the first two measures of each pattern is accurate, but in the second measure the chord and bass are not on the downbeat, which is why I prefer to divide it into 5/4 and 3/4.

    Here's mine with the chords added.

    Try Jazz-Long Notes style. I hope you feel better :-)
