Fast forward a few years and my buddy from college, Steve Bidwell, posted about Gaylord on his blog, which reminded my that I had never finished this post. Long story short, here we are. Gaylord is killer, there's a cool transcription below, and you should also check out Steve's blog.

Transcription - Gaylord Birch, "Yes We Can Can"
This one has been in the drafts folder for a loooong time.
I remember the girl across the street from me growing up and her parents were big fans of the Pointer Sisters. Then a few years ago I was reminded of them when this tune came on the radio very late one night as I was driving home from a gig. I checked out the record the next day, read up on the drummer, Gaylord Birch, who I wasn't really familiar with, and made a note to transcribe that cool breakdown.
