NEW BASS TRANSCRIPTION EBOOK: SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER


In this deluxe, 17-song, 76-page ebook collection, the disco-defining soundtrack from the 1977 movie gives up its bass lines. Another great work from Aidan Hampson.

The Bee Gees were not the producers' first choice (Boz Scaggs had committments), but they dropped what they were doing, pretended to be disco to the core, and blew out most of the songs over a weekend.

They weren't the only stars on the soundtrack. Kool & the Gang, KC and the Sunshine Band and others contributed songs. This collection even includes the 10-minute closing track, Disco Inferno, performed by The Trammps.

Of course, Stayin' Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Jive Talkin' and If I Can't Have You are here, as are More Than a Woman (both Bee Gees and Tavares versions), A Fifth of Beethoven, and more.
