Does anyone know where you can get transcripts for Anita Bakers music?
I've got a transcription of Been So Long from the Rapture album. Is that one of the songs you're working on?
Can you email it ? Or post on your web site?
What - and spoil all the fun of you figuring it out yourself?
What I've got transcribed is what I play when doing it with my band - without listening back, I can't remember quite how close that is to the original. However, the bit which took me longest to do was the main bass riff, used for the intro and chorus:
Get this under your fingers and that's most of the song sorted out. The verses use a similar rhythm to the first bar working round the progression F / / / | C / / / | Bb / / / | C / / / |. The same riff is also used for the outro section with a little bit of elaboration. Once you've got it down there only the 16 bar bridge after the second chorus to figure out - let me know if you need more help when you get to that stage.
ps. I hope posting this riff as a graphic doesn't affect either the copyright care taken for the whole board (see discussion in the Suggestion Box about a transcription forum) or the rules of the tab forum (I guess I could tab that little bit out but it seems such a pain when I've already got it as a finale file).
OK, usually I figure out songs myself and use transcripts to see how close I am. But thanks anyway...
... and how close were you (or how close was I)?
