MAHAMIDI --- Midi Files of John Mclaughlin
Here is a collection of Midi files related to John Mclaughlin.
I have done more myself:
- Guardian angel
- Midi file ---- the original version off One truth Band bits only.
Arranged for piano. Although guitar sounds can be easily substituted. The
right hand part is played an octave higher.
- Midi file --- the Friday Night in San Francisco version (sequenced by
Benjamin Tubb). (Minor changes to bum notes and midi - 28/7/98 by me).
- East Side West Side --- off Mahavishnu 84. The synclavier (horn patch) gtr solo
+ keyboard + bass + some really crap drum rhythm (not cobham's part). I
hate midi drum programming and do not have the source music anymore. Sure
hope this gets out on CD. Taken from A "Guitar Player"
Transcription also in "New Directions in Modern Guitar" ---
a book of a collection of guitar player interviews, published by Hal Leonard.
- Manha Da Carnaval --- backing gtr bit off the Trio CD. Although John has
played this track for several years. It is on the Meeting of Spirits video.
- Lotus Feet

I also have 4 John related Midis. Tracks he has played in concert or
recorded. But the versions are not really as he did it.
- Spain --- the Chick Corea song. I find this great to play guitar along to.
John has played this frequently in concert on the Guitar Trio tour last as
an encore with his Trio and with Katia Labeque. He also arranged for the
Labeque Sisters CD he produced "Love of Colours"
- Favourite things --- he did this on the Coltrane trubute CD. I love playing
along to this on Guitar. Mute the lead melody and off you go.
- A waltz for Debby --- The Bill Evans classic.
- Very Early --- another bill evans classic.
- Mediterranean Sundance --- Not really JM but Paco and Al. Great version though.
