Hey, the (mostly) excellent bass transcription site "The Scott Thunes
Effect" seems to have disappeared off the internet recently. (I say
"mostly" because the fast-7 solo section of Inca was inexplicably
transcribed as being in 5.) http://www.thescotthuneseffect.com/ was
there a few weeks ago, now it ain't.

Another legal casualty?

More likely a fiscal casualty. (d)We(e)bsites are dropping like flies,
all over....

Having heard the release on youtube, I have to admit it's
standard-fare for Zappa performances, absolutely nothing
extraordinary.

For anyone with 50 CD"s of Zappa or more ...this is like a LIMP DICK
... because ZAppa fans have come to expect so much more than simply
excellence and perfect performances.

I'd have to look at exactly what you're talking about (could it have
been a varied non-OSFA Inca?) ... but this guy was an amazing
transcriber, afaik ... he actually corrected a few mistakes on one of
my guitar transcriptions, which really impressed me...

I can't remember his name -- but DUDE -- come back!

I haven't seen this transcription, but presumably he's talking about
the sax solo from the Best Band version, and yes, that is in 7, not 5.

the 5 was fairly explicable: I probably fucked up... probably counted
it as two groups of 3 then 2 groups of two

still, who gives a fuck anyway

the domain lapsed and I tried to buy it again... some joker wanted
$1800 for it, so fageddaboutit

the transcriptions, including the fabled wrong bits (by the way, feel
free to give me corrections) can now be found at www.basstranscriptions.com

maybe it's best I don't have an entirely Thunes-focused website.. he's
a big scary man who shouts at people who displease him, so I don't
want him thinking i'm a stalker or anything

cheers,

Steve
