Greg Skaff – Highway 54

Hello again – I’ve been working on tunes in odd meters, so below is a transcription of Greg Skaff’s tune “Highway 54” as played on the album “Blues For Mr. T”.  It’s a nice tune in 5/4 and you can hear it here.  I was going to post a transcription of Dave Holland’s tune Processional, which is another great tune in 5/4, but Dave Holland has lead sheets available on his website to download so it doesn’t seem right, but it’s a great tune to check out.
