UPDATED! Uploaded – Brad Mehldau Lead Sheets and Transcriptions

I have finally finished my collection of transcriptions since a post I made last month.  Sorry it has taken so long but the job was bigger than I imagined.  Below are transcriptions (2 handed where indicated) of Knives Out, River Man, Sky Turning Grey, How Long Has This Been Going On, Anything Goes, Someone To Watch Over Me, Tres Palabras, I’ll Be Seeing You, and Exit Music For a Film.  The reason I have made 2 handed transcriptions of certain lead sheets is because Mehldau is so creative with his left hand, therefore making it necessary to document how he supports melody.

PLEASE NOTE: – to print these documents, download the latest version of Acrobat Reader (free), then remove security.  Please subscribe to my site, then email me for the password, I am happy for you to print these, if you ask nicely! 🙂
