The Blues Brothers


  • This was an interesting song to transcribe as there were hardly any MIDI source files and the one that I found was really kinky. Despite this, I had fun working this one up. Would have liked to include a version with keys and horns but that version just did not sound as good as I wanted. I left the cheat sheet as a Word document so the chords can be transposed.
  • Due to the nice share of a much better quality MIDI source file, I worked up 2 additional ALT versions (1186)
  • Make sure you’re using the latest versions of the Jazz Trio Brushes kit as it has some corrected bass notes—otherwise, the bass might sound like it has stuck notes.
  • How to find drum sets or songs on this forum and the old one
  • Is there a guide to what OBPks and all those other Acronyms stand for listed anywhere?

Suggested kit(s):

  • v1 Standard Pro
  • v2 NP StdPBass 63-91
  • v3 Bosendorfer Jazz Trio 60+C1
  • v2 ALT & v3 ALT Jazz Trio Brushes 60+C0
