Anybody tried transcribing John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme' for geeeeeeeetar?

I'm about halfway through the album having finished 'Acknowledgement' and 'Resolution' .. its challenging to say the least but fun all the same!

If you want another challenge that'll really push your boundaries, tune your guitar to a Japanese Koto's tuning, then learn some traditional stuff by ear.

Really challenging.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Look up Love Devotion Surrender - It was an album by John McLaughlin and Santana. They cover portions of A Love Supreme as well as Naima (which was the first time we heard the direction that led Coltrane to ALS)

what IS the tuning?

There are several different note progressions that compose the tuning of the koto, which has 13 strings. The most common and basic tuning, called Hira Joshi, is, with ascending pitch -

D - G - A - A# - D - D# - G - A - A# - D - D# - G - A

except:
String 1 is in unison with string 5 in classical pieces.
String 1 is usually an octave below string 5 in modern pieces

I'd rather have a Guzheng than a Koto

I prefer shamisen, honestly, but it's only got three strings. You can mod a guitar's tuning to a koto more readily.
