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!

Solo bass transcriptions by stpeter

Our friend Peter Saint-Andre (a.k.a.stpeter) has made several arrangements of Yessongs for solo bass, some of them are available in standard notation at his site. Here’s the link for this and other of Peter’s musical (a)ventures.

YES transcriptions by Steve Glasgow

Scottish musician Steve Glasgow has made incredible bass transcriptions from several artists, including YES.
Besides downloading the scores and tabs, you can read Steve’s in-depth analysis of the basslines, which are very interesting and show the dedication and valuable work of this fine musician.

Steve Glasgow – Going For The One

Steve Glasgow – Parallels

Steve’s website is also good looking and well organized. I strongly recommend a visit!

Hold Out Your Hand / You By My Side – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION

This clip includes the same audio that I recorded in 2008. The bass audio production was improved and slightly over-mixed to make it more audible. Youtube’s audio compression is much better than 2 years ago and that largely improved the results. Thank you very much Simon Gilman for another excellent contribution with the transcription!

Starship Trooper – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION

This is an old cover from 2001 where I added some non-bass parts played on the bass, to fill in for “Disillusion” and the guitar intro of Würm. 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 very end. The transcription is another kind contribution from Simon Gilman. Hope you enjoy it!

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) .

Thank you, Simon, for your excellent work, and hope this will be the first of many!
