Jeff Berlin Bass Solo Transcription of Bach from "Pump it"

Here is my transcription of the solo section of Bach from Jeff Berlin's 1986 album "Pump it".
I did this transcription back in the late '90 upon coming back from Jeff's Player's School Of Music One-Week-Intensive. The "Bach" classical section is in Cm, and the Solo is mostly in Am.
Sorry, no bass TAB for this one.

Happy Shedding!



If you want to learn more from Jeff Berlin, the legend himself brings his unique teaching philosophies to life on this DVD and offers different ways to improve and develop your bass playing abilities. Harmonic exercises are used to open doors to bass players wishing to explore new tonalities and melodic possibilities. Approx 99 minutes.

Oscar Pettiford Bass Solo Transcription - The Man I Love

This transcription is for one of the first EVER recorded Oscar Pettiford bass solo. It was featured on a Coleman Hawkins Record called Classic Tenors in 1943. Oscar was only 21 yrs old at the time, and he blazed thru that 206 bpm song. This is my rendition of his solo with my 1963 Fender P-Bass with flat-wound strings. Below you will find my transcription of his bass solo in both standard notation and with TAB. Enjoy!
