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 transcriptionsContinue reading “More transcriptions by Simon Gilman”

Turn Of The Century

Turn Of The Century – Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Yessongs of all, and again, with one of the most fascinating basslines by Chris Squire. Many peculiarities about it as well.

The tremolo effect is a Boss TR-2 pedal, while the final fuzz was done with the multi-effects Boss ME-8B, along with it’s octave effect at the veryContinue reading “Starship Trooper – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION”

Astral Traveller – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION

This is the first contribution from Simon Gilman, who made his bass transcription of Astral Traveller. I added the same audio of my original audio bassline from 2008, with a slightly louder bass in the mix. Hopefully it will sound a bit better (along with the apparently better audio encoding of YouTube) . Download theContinue reading “Astral Traveller – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION”
