I have been transcribing Rock and Pop basslines for years, usually as I'm about to play them on a gig.
Thought I'd share some of them here as most are simple lines that are great for practising your sight reading.
I'll update with new transcriptions following requests / as and when I write new ones / feel like it.
I'm going to stick with simple stuff (no Dream Theatre!) to hopefully encourage people to use dots rather than TAB.

As always I'd welcome your comments / corrections.

(You'll need to change the file extension from .ipd to .pdf to view them)

Enjoy!
Chris

First up some INXS as requested:

I'm feeling like a new one is on the cards. I love a bit of Pino so here you go - Paul Young's version of Everytime You Go Away:

The challenge here is to see if anyone can nail the Bdim run. :D

Hi there - just wanted to say thanks for the Pump It Up transcription. Kept me busy for a little while & really enjoyed giving it a bash! :)

Don't meant to be cheeky, but if you are happy to take requests, I've looked all over for a sheet of John Paul Jones' excellent work on Dusty Springfield's Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone. It's a great line, but my ear just isn't good enough to keep up...
Deep peace of the running wave to you;
Deep peace of the flowing air to you;
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you;
Deep peace of the shining stars to you;
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you;
Deep peace be upon you.

Cool tune, I'll see if I can get it down for you.

Hey Simon,

Here you go, a quick transcription of the above. I'm not sure it's 100%, but it's close. Enjoy!

I am both Flabbered and, indeed, Gasted!

Thanks very much! :thank_you: I suspect this might keep me busy for a while...
