Yep - it's about 200 pages, of which 150-odd are transcriptions. It shouldn't be considered a biog.

Anything Duck Dunn is good. . . . but if you can't get his bass lines from listening to the records you need to sharpen up your playing by ear more than you need transcrpitions.

Did you read the amazon review ? Some muppet complains that there is insufficient biography and too much transcription
I'm probably reading on an iPhone and so cant see signatures and locations as I'm likely using the lo-fi version..Please be understanding if I ask for this information for the usual reasons.

A corollary to that would be; They could have saved 75 pages by getting rid of the dots. So why don't you just buy it, rip the tab pages out and post them to me? I'd like you to be happy with your purchase.

I'm dense and impenetrable. That's why I need tab.
