Aidan Hampson Prince, Michael Jackson and Aerosmith Transcriptions for Bass

Top bass transcriptionist Aidan Hampson has another bunch of downloadable transcription books available — Michael Jackson: Bad, Best of Prince and Best of Aerosmith for Bass.

Hampson notes that the Bad transcriptions complete his Quincy Jones trilogy. “There are some fantastic basslines here from the likes of Nathan East and Greg Phillinganes. This is the first time that hits like ‘Man in the Mirror’ and ‘Smooth Criminal’ have been written out for bass and they’re great fun to play.”

You can look inside the book here (first video) and take a glimpse of the Aerosmith book, too (second video):
