Bass Transcription: Billie Jean Bass Line

To quote a friend, “Spoiler alert, the kid is not his son.”

Departing from jazz for a bit, I thought it would be fun to offer a full transcription of the Billie Jean bass line in notation.

The end of the second page you’ll notice a roadmap of the rest of the song. The bass line is repetitive, which is one thing I love about it, but it doesn’t necessarily make for interesting transcription.

So, I went the shorthand route. Happy playing!
