Freddie Freeloader – Miles Davis

Freddie Freeloader Lead Sheet

Freddie Freeloader is one of those much talked about songs, but really you don’t play that often. However we’ve decided to share the¬†Freddie Freeloader Lead Sheet.

I remember in my days of early education when attending my local music conservatory and when I was studying jazz and contemporary music, I played lots of jazz standards in our small band, but never did we ever play Freddie Freeloader.

Freddie Freeloader was originally written by Miles Davis, and was recorded to become a part of the 1959 record Kind of Blue.

When you listen to Miles Davis’ music in general – and Freddie Freeloader is no exception – most of his “Kind of Blue” music is modal, not tonal. Its head and theme feels more modal, while the solo section focusses on a traditional blues progression.

Meaning that his theme and music does nat have a tonic center such as, let’s say for example Donna Lee or Stella by Starlight.

If you really like the Freddie Freeloader Lead Sheet that we have shared, we would kindly ask that you share this chart with your fellow music man and woman so that we can spread the word on what it is we do here at Minedit.

And that is act as a public domain file sharing service and knowledge center.
