Why are Chicago bass tabs scarce?

    I would like to learn more songs of their first album mostly but cant find anything really. Anyone have any Chicago songs tabbed, possibly off the Chicago Transit Authority?

    They're scarce because there's "jamming" involved...would be a nightmare for the person TABing it out...IMO.

    There are two(2) Transcribed Scores books on Chicago's earliest albums...both are worth it. IIRC, the bass is in Standard Notation & TAB.

    Serious, most tabs are wrong anyway so you are better off either learning it directly from the music or getting the books that JimK recommended.

    We play I'm a Man and the tabs that are out there are very basic and wrong.
