First of all, these transcriptions are GREAT! Thank you so much for providing them: I have found the Last Solo transcription very useful.
I wanted to discuss some potential errors that I found early in the transcription. In comparison with the YouTube video of Mr. Jarrett playing his "Final Impromptu" (Last Solo) piece, I noticed some discrepancies between that video recording and the transcription I found here. If that recording is not where the transcription originated from, please ignore everything below!
I apologize for not knowing the technical terms that go along with describing the issues; I will try my best.
1. The loop in the left hand (that is played for the entire piece) should include a D with the F and Bb, making it an inverted Bb major chord. At times, it sounds like he doesn't pronounce it, but I definitely heard/saw it for most of the piece.
2. The right hand in measures 2 and 3 should look similar the right hand in measure 1, except they should include the 1/8 rest followed by the C played at the beginning of measure 3.
3. The eigth note pattern of the inverted F major chord to the C major chord (beginning at the very end of measure 4) should have a different cadence... Near the end of each cadence (when considering the C major chord as the beginning of each cadence), there is a set of 1/16 notes (the F major inverted to the C major). I don't believe he plays it in this manner. In measure 5, after the 6th chord played (the F major inverted chord), there should be a 1/16 rest followed by another 1/8 F major inverted chord followed by another 1/16 rest followed by the ending C major chord that is held over from the end into the beginning of the cadence.
I will be back if I want to discuss anything later in the piece!
I want to again express my gratitude for bringing forth this transcription. I would have had a much more difficult time learning the piece without it.
