    So, each week my band gives ourselves new song assignments. This week was Deep Purple-Ted the Mechanic, S. Hagar-Can't drive 55, Robert Cray-smokin Gun and Kansas-Down the Road. I got the first three down and just don't have the time to sit down and learn the Kansas one by ear. If anyone knows where I can find a tab for it I would be gratefull. :bassist:

    Hi there.
    I am also looking for this bass tab for my band.
    Did you find it?
    If so, could you send it me.
    Thanks
    Nick

    Check this vid out. This guy does a fantastic job with Down The Road.

    I have the sheet music of the bass part but its notation not tab.... I could post that if it'll help someone...

    Sure, I wouldn't mind seeing the notation. I'm not a good enough reader to just sit down and play it in real time but I could work it out. Great song on a great album.


    Slight derail - Have any other Kansas sheet music (bass). Dave Hope moved on 30 years ago but he's still one of my favorite bassists!

    Hey Dave,
    Here is Carry On Wayward Son -- I got this from http://www.thebassment.info -- Am having a bit of problem printing the notation to pdf (some weird font problem). I'll figure it out eventually and post Down The Road straight away.

    Dave Hope is awesome!

    Cheers,

    Gary

    Dave,
    Here is Down The Road - Bass line - from a Midi file I found online. It's pretty close I think. One change I would make would be in the riff that starts in measure 8. As notated it's E-G-E -- I play F#-G-E (and B-C-A when it moves up to A)...
