Bass Transcriptions

Bass transcriptions, plus a few other neat things.
I use Finale notation software and Transcribe!

If you would like to hire me to do a transcription, please get in touch. All charts are in their original key. If my chart has been helpful to you, of course tips are appreciated. I’d also be happy to email you a transposition of a chart as needed for $5 USD via PayPal (Goods & Services option) or Venmo.

This is an ongoing process where I am finally organizing the dozens of transcriptions I’ve made for my own use over the past years. It is default sorted with most recent work on top. You can sort by song title, artist, etc. like in any spreadsheet, or use the search bar. Older charts will surely have oddities & mistakes, which I’ll endeavor to correct… just let me know!
