Aidan Hampson: Best of Coldplay, The Police, and The Eagles Bass Transcription Books

Aidan Hampson has added three new books to his library of bass transcriptions with The Best of Coldplay, The Best of The Police, and The Best of The Eagles.

“Both Coldplay and The Police use a combination of electric and synth bass, and I’ve endeavored to detail their use of each in as much detail as possible,” Hampson writes. “The Eagles have long deserved an accurate set of bass transcriptions.”

Each book has transcriptions of hits by each band with bass lines by Coldplay’s Guy Berryman, The Police’s Sting, and Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles. They are each available priced at $7.99 and available as a PDF download through Hampson’s website.
