Zander Zon Challenge!
Hopefully most of you know Zander Zon (if not go check out his youtube channel immediatly, you'll thank me later)
He released a transcription album, but unfortunately it only includes his own songs. Not that they're bad at all, but it's his arrangements that are simply amazing, at least in my opinion.
So here it is, since there's a lot of expert bass players on this forum, I'm hoping someone can help me.
I'll give a trillion internets to whoever is able to post a complete tablature of any one of these awesome solo bass arrangements:
TUNING [quote]:"standard fourths - but i think it's something like C F Bb Eb (or a half step higher or lower)"
Stairway to Heaven:
TUNING:A F# C# E
Tears in Heaven:
TUNING: BEAD. everything is a 5th up.
TUNING: he didn't say :( which is too bad because this is my favorite..
Show us your first.
maybe you just want someone else to do the work for you?
I'm just not the kind of guy that can tell notes by ear, not even simple riffs..
that's why I go around looking for tabs, and since there are none for those arrangements I decided to try asking people who are good at this.
Also, it wouldn't be just for me, I'm pretty sure there's a few dozen thousands of amateur bass players out there looking for those tabs online... and can't figure it out by ear like me.
btw I did type "I'm hoping someone can help me", I don't see what gave you that negative impression, I thought that was the point of this section of the forum...
To start with, he's using piccolo tuning. So unless you have a bass set up with strings tuned an octave higher, any tabs you find won't sound the same with standard tuning.
Well it'll just sound "lower", I knew that he used those weird kind of strings.
I think it might still sound good, and anyway once you learn the arrangement you can also buy that kind of strings if you prefer.
I know he also uses different tunings for the different arrangements, so yeah, It's a very though job writing down tabs for that.
I know there isn't many chances that someone'll do it, but I just had to try because it would just be a great accomplishment and so useful to lots of people.. me in particular of course.
I might have asked too much..
because I think he did tell what tuning he used in most of his videos, while answering people's questions...
I'll go look for them and add them to the first post
I think you will be interested in this :
I wrote and published the Zander Zon bass transcription book. It was done in close collaboration with Zander to ensure complete accuracy. We also have transcriptions done of 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Tears in Heaven', which will probably be released as free downloads on the Bassline Publishing website at some point in the future. At the moment, they still need a little tidying up, but I'll discuss this with Zander, and see if we can get them out there at some point this year.
This is awesome news, I hope they'll be released soon, and the Unforgiven and Halleluja arrrangements too :bassist:
