so, in my jazz band, consisting of a bunch of beginners, myself included, we got an assignment to find and transcribe a head from a blues song
now, i have no real knowledge of the blues world, can somebody give me an artist, or even better, a song, that i could try and transcribe? thanks in advance!
yeah, i've got gear too...
squier strat
squier tele
Ibanez rg4ex
Boss DS-1
Morely Bad Horsie Wah
Digitech Hot Head
Boss GE-7
Zoom G1X
Mesa Boogie 5:50 Express
Vox AD50vt
QOTSA - Make It Wit Chu. pretty bluesy, and not too difficult. Maybe a Pink Floyd song, the solos are pretty bluesy most of the time. BB King has some good songs.
I'd suggest Tenor Madness (Sonny Rollins)

for more of a challenge, consider Billie's Bounce (Charlie Parker)

this is assuming we're talking jazz blues, which I'm deducing from your usage of the word head.
