  1. Bass Transcriptions

    Found this guitar TAB site [url="https://www.guitar.ch/en/guitars/tabs/tabs.html"]https://www.guitar.c.../tabs/tabs.html[/url] also contains accurate Bass Tabs/Transcriptions. Be aware that several tunes have the bass at the very end of the file so worth scrolling down. Also try checking out [url="https://www.songsterr.com/"]https://www.songsterr.com/[/url] personally not a great lover of TAB but both sites show the rhythm in the TAB.
  2. Pino on Go West...

    I have the bass transcription of said song. Tried to upload but I have used up my meager space. If someone would like to send me their email maybe they can post for me.
  3. Good Sight Reading Bassist available

    Still looking!
  4. Sight Reading 4/5 string Bassist available for Depping/Residency or regular gigging band in the Hereford area. Click friendly.
  5. Sight reading help!

    I recall when I started to learn to read my teacher advised me to not play the A,D and G string open. With this method I soon learnt the different positions for these three notes. Try this exercise. Play the scale beginning (C) on the 3rd fret of the A string using your 2nd finger to fret. Next 5th fret (D) of the A string with your 4th finger. Then 2nd fret of the D string (E) with your 1st finger, then 3rd fret of the D string (F) with your 2nd finger. Next 5th fret of the D string (G) with your 4th finger. Then 2nd fret of the G string (A) with your 1st finger. Fourth fret on the G string ( with your 3rd finger and finally 5th fret of the G string (C) with your 4th finger to complete the octave. When you have played enough times that the fingering becomes 2nd nature using the same fingering start the scale on the eighth fret of the E string, the same scale of C. Now having learnt the scale of C still using the same fingering begin on the 5th fret of the E string (A).
  6. Free Bass Transcriptions

  9. Bassist wanted for Dep gig.

    Gig now sorted. Thanks guys for the interest. Ron
  10. Bassist wanted for Dep gig.

    I have just been offered a short cruise contract so unable to make a gig on the 28th August. Gig is at the Fountain Beer Festival in Herefordshire. It's with a female fronted 5 piece band. I have 90% of the set in transcriptions so would ideally suit a reader. None of the charts are difficult so reading need not be up to a high standard. A full set list plus tracks can be viewed/listen to here http://www.gigall.co.uk/Turnstone/ Need to sort this fairly quickly as need to let organizers know if gig has to be cancelled. Ron
  11. Regarding Warming Up

    I have always favoured the stretching of the tendons method. Push your hand using the other gently back and fore. Think of it like a runner doing stretches before and after a run.
