Free Bass Transcriptions

Recommended Posts

I've recently tarted up overhauled my bass blog and transcriptions website and I'm currently wading through my Sibelius folder of unfinished transcriptions in an effort to get some new stuff up on the site.

I started posting transcriptions that I'd done for gigs or as requests from students a few years ago and now have roughly 100 pdfs in the archive which are free to download. There are also some play-along videos for a handful of the more popular transcriptions.

I thought I'd start a thread for posting new transcriptions and site updates rather than cluttering up the forum with lots of individual posts.

Link is here: www.freebasstranscriptions.com


Feedback is most welcome, particularly if BCers have transcription requests or suggestions for improvements!

Some useful transcripts there, ta. I like the site design as well, clean and uncluttered, very straightforward.

Some seasonal offerings which might save time prepping for gigs:

More on the way...

Used your transcriptions for a few gigs! They're great. What software and equipment do you use for transcribing?

Good to hear they're useful!

I use an old version of Sibelius for writing things out, other than that it's spotify > vox headphone amp > cheap headphones.

If I'm working on something that's really complicated then I'll use Quicktime 7 or the Tempo Slow iPad app to slow things down and loop sections.

Ah, that's the part I'd forgotten about! Yeah, midi keyboard and numeric keypad (for note lengths and articulation) are important parts of the Sibelius equation.

The site has had another facelift and is still having its 'back end' done up...

I also put on my Big Girl Pants and did my first ever gear review, demoing the much-hyped Noble Preamp:
