Bilbo's Transcription Archive in Theory and Technique Posted October 2 9 hours ago, Bilbo said: This one really was a long-awaited effort. I have had it in mind to transcribe this probably since I started playing the bass. I got my first bass, a Hondoo II Precision copy in September 1980. I know that because that was the year I started working for a living and I paid for it with my first pay packet. At that point, I was already listening to the Friday Rock Show and, like every Rock fan who lived through that era, the opening theme from the show promised great things. It wasn't until some years later that I learned that the tune that opened the show was called 'Take It Off The Top' by the Dixie Dregs. What is more, the tune featured a genuine bass solo in the form of Andy West's two bar exchanges with guitarist Steve Morse (both names I would not know for some time yet). Last night, I put the final touches to this transcription and it is now available on my website. We got there in the end! https://bilbosbassbites.co.uk/take-it-off-the-top-dixie-dregs/ Always loved that, thanks! Aah, the much missed Tommy Vance. AKA Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston.... No wonder he adopted a stage name!
