    Hal Leonard has bass playalongs for Queen and Pink Floyd but nothing for Supertramp.

    Having said that I would strongly encourage you to learn this stuff by ear and make the charts yourself if needed. The music by these bands is not very dense for the bass guitar so it's not going to be like transcribing a Parker solo or even a Geddy Lee bass part. You'll retain this stuff in your memory better if you figure it out for yourself. Sounds like a fun project. Good luck.

  3. I'd check online sites that allow you to buy single songs like mbeall noted. I've purchased some sheet music that was dead on and others that I (along with MUCH help from TB) had to totally re-write. Most places will give you a 1 page preview so check that out to verify how accurate it is.

    just checked the links. i am looking for something free if possible.
     
  6. Free is gonna be tough for what you're looking for, at least that's what I ran into. The best I could find was between $3 and $6 per song. That was at the link mbeall posted along with other similar sites.
