Transcriptions – Little One by Herbie Hancock – submitted by HalfNelson
Honestly, Herbie looked like a kids having a great time throughout the concert. I suppose it counts as a prototype if he had it modified to have the effects loop jacks before they were added to the production model.
How long did this take to accomplish? In one section he did some really nice things with a vocoder. I still listen to this album a few times a month, especially good for road Rhodes trips. Can’t wait to see more.
I don’t know about the prototype theory – if I ran the Rhodes factory and supplied one to Herbie, even if I said it was a ‘stock’ model, I’m sure I’d have chosen the best out of ‘s – but I don’t know whether what Herbie had was anything more than a fantastic example, slightly modified.
Yes that’s a great version with Herbie on Rhodes – those early silvertop Fender Rhodeses had such a different tone in comparison to the mid 70’s.
Nice of you to share your stuff here with all of of us. I am missing the other elements of the bigger picture as you said – but am I a better player for studying Herbie’s music in such detail?
Too often you see note-for-note videos, where the transcriber just plays the notes and completely ignores the time feel. Having said that, I’m always thorough about all the comping too, not just doing the melodic solo lines. Obviously I aspire to having the ability and command of music that Herbie does so that I could view things on a much more general plane – rhythmically, harmonically etc.
Musicale Gold Member Registered: Page 3 of 3. Check out this track from The solo only gives a hint at what rhythmic world the player was choosing from. They played much of his earlier fusion stuff, ie Chameleon, Watermelon Man, but that mostly consisted of quoting the head then going off into wonderful solos and ensemble playing loosely based on the melody.
But the first time I believe is at the 7: Vince is perhaps the best ensemble drummer I’ve ever seen. Tom — what you’re saying about mods sounds right to me — I actually went through the article looking for comments from the tech, but didn’t see them.
Switch to Threaded Mode. Amazing musician and person. I have played with a very large number of equally diversified musicians over my career.
Resolution 88 Senior Member Registered: I think transcriptikns classical and then applying the interval training really helps. In the ’80s article, he seemed to be talking about a particular Rhodes he’d had for a while, and didn’t dispute the interviewer’s assertion that it was a prototype. Hi Chris – many thanks for the reply – I would have given out my Actual Proof solo transcription but at the moment I’m in the process of investigating publishing and copyright for Herbie’s 70’s songs because I plan to release the transcriptions properly if it proves to be viable.
I really love your transcriptions. Herbie Hancock exact, note-for-note transcriptions on Rhodes [ Re: Appreciate this endeavor of yours. Having to transcribe Charlie Parker solos was a scarry thought for a 19 year old kid.
How do you verify perhaps the most difficult part of the music- the melodic rhythms? Wags Don’t have much to add regarding transcriptions, and I can appreciate the hard work that goes into them, but I doubt that Herbie ever played the same song the same way twice.
I totally failed at copping Bootsy’s music, which was a part of James’ music. There might have been a Rhodes in the back but he didn’t play it.
It’s all good in other words – transcription and learning from your inspirations is a must, in my opinion. When you say a stock Rhodes, I don’t know.

Thanks, Tom Originally Posted By: Just having the solo is only a small part of the totality of the music. Dave BryceStephen Fortner. The bottom line is – out of all the transcription books I’ve seen, I’ve always looked at them and then gone back and done it properly myself.
Paul Harrison Senior Member Registered: I’m gradually trying to transcribe all of Herbie’s back-catalogue from that era That is the plane that Herbie operates on. Herbie doesn’t have to put any thought into II-V-Is, that’s for sure! Too often, I disagree with the voicings and it’s also a very tough balance to notate something in a legible form rhythm-wise, whilst getting across the swing or lilt of a phrase that is played well behind the beat.
I think we all have to focus on the specifics of anything in order to grasp the rungs on the way to what we’re trying to achieve.
And listening to Master’s play, speaks to me Ideally I’d spend time looking at the rhythm section too in fact, I’ve transcribed Sly completely including the bass and drums but most of the time it’s just the Rhodes I examine. Rhythm is greatly understudied in my opinion.
