Kansas – “Leftoverture”: The Complete Basslines, Part 1
After the enormous popularity of the transcription of the bassline for Kansas’ “Carry on Wayward Son” last year, I have teamed up with YouTube bass playthrough master Troy Hughes to create a complete set of basslines for the Kansas album Leftoverture.
The work includes both standard notation and tab, analysis of the bassline, video lessons with advice on playing the basslines, and playthroughs. In addition, there is expanded text about Dave Hope, Kansas, the making of the album, and some rare live photos of Dave Hope taken by Richard Galbraith.
The first installment, including the main text and a new, improved version of the transcription, and a tutorial and playthrough are available via a link below. Each month we will be releasing transcriptions and playthroughs for the remaining songs in order to make a complete set.
Be sure to download the first part of the book and follow along with Troy’s playthrough and explanation:
