1000th bass transcription on the site!

The biggest collection of FREE bass transcriptions in the world passed through into four figures!  The 1000th chart to be added was a transcription of the bassline for "True Love" by Glenn Frey, ordered by regular customer, Canadian bassist Scott VanDriel, from Ontario.

Scott therefore was refunded his payment and received the 1000th transcription free by way of celebration.  He said "The many charts and tabs Tom has provided me have been a godsend, gems that have given me accuracy in my playing and confidence. He has provided great service that I have counted on for many years!"



Endorsed artiste for Sfarzo Strings

Sfarzo are my favourite strings ever played.  The V-strings have an incredible warmth and depth of tone, are light and comfortable to play, and have terrific control.  I love them!
