More transcriptions by Simon Gilman

This week I received news from our friend Simon Gilman, who contributed 9 years ago (tempus fugit!) with his own bass transcriptions of Yes and Chris’ songs, in which I had played the (audio) bassline.

Those were Astral Traveler, Starship Trooper and Hold Out Your Hand.

This time, Simon has written another set of transcriptions using my videos as reference, and was kind enough to share them again with us, this time in pdf format! So, without further ado, here they are!

Thank you very much, Simon!
