Spirit On The Water - Bob Dylan

From Dylan's "Modern Times" record featuring Denny Freeman and Stu Kimball. Great etude for getting your triad chops together and understanding some advanced harmonic concepts in a non-jazz setting. The first 4 measures of the A section are usually played as notated whereas the notation in the last 4 measures is a suggestion of the triad voicings that could be played. In the B section I added a few riffs that are played on the record and focused on the smoothest voice leading possible. There are endless possibilities to either section once you really dig in.

Transcription available at my Soundslice channel.
