  • 100% note-by-note bass transcriptions. Basslines are transcribed with great accuracy in standard notation with tabs, solos included!

  • Chord Symbols. The defining, characteristic component of sheet music is its chord symbols. A chord symbol defines the current harmonic region, as a key signature, and it stays in effect until the chord changes. Chord symbols are set above the staff, centred over the beat where the new harmonic region begins.

  • Tempo, Styles, Clef, Key and Time Signatures. These provide a basic orientation for the musician.

  • Ensemble Notation. Critical instrumental hooks, ensemble rhythmic concepts (stop time, or kicks), and repeated licks (often for the bass) might appear in notation in temporary second staff.
