    While the percussion tracks are not included, you do get the piano, melodies, and every bit of counterpoint. Learning this by ear would take years. Every time you listen, and play this piece, you'll discover something new. This is in my top ten music works of ALL TIME. It...

    's that good.

  • June 05, 2007 Pat Metheny Group - The Way Up

    I am not a huge Pat Metheny fan but I fell in love with The Way Up instantly. I am a composition student so this helped me see that even though you study composition, it doesn't have to be strictly classical composition which alot of colleges make it seem...

    like it should be that way. It's hard to follow the score sometimes because it doesn't list the instruments but thats good because i plan on going in and figuring out what instrument plays what and filling it in. It is definently an awsome and quite large score and definently worth purchasing. If I lost it i would buy it again and if i couldn't afford it I would probably purchase a Maria Schnieder score.

  • April 03, 2005 Fantastic

    This piece of music needs no introduction for many of us, but for those who are not familiar with the compositions of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays, this isn't a terrible place to start. This is their longest composition ever put to record; 68 minutes 7 seconds, I believe...

    . Anyway, this score is essential to anyone curious about exotic time signatures, compositional masterpieces, or someone who really digs this record. I only have two grudges against this score: no drum notation, not even sample drum beats, and the instrumentation is not given. The staves are not labeled by instrument nor are the instruments used on the recording listed anywhere, and odd guitar tunings aren't given. Instrumentation isn't as big a deal because you can listen to the record and figure it out pretty easily (except a lot of people mistake the melody at the beginning of part one as being played by a marimba when it is played by a thumb piano a.k.a. a kalimba.) All in all, this book is a wise investment.
