    I saw a transcription years ago, regular notation, but it was bunk. I wore the record grooves flat on this LP when I was a bass newbie.

    Here's my take on this. As you can see I debated between staccato 8th notes and 16th notes in certain places. Is there any standard way of notating this? Also, I'm still not sure about those B chords (e.g. measure 10). It starts off with minor sound, but that D seems to continue for the second half of the measure when Rocco plays the D#. I welcome any thoughts on this.

    There isn't a standard way. The most important thing is legibility. Most of your transcription is written the same way I would do it. I had no trouble reading along with the recording. So perfect for me :)

    Exceptionally clean job. Most importantly it's uncluttered. Other versions I've seen are a blizzard of crowded sixteenths - kind of muddy. This one breathes a little. The difficulty in distinguishing between some eighth and sixteenths is probably due to Rocco's muting & the uncanny way he & Garibaldi lock up.
