To Steve,

I found your request for a transcription of "Boom Boom Out Go the Lights" when doing a yahoo search on Mars Cowling. Your email address no longer works.

Mars was a huge influence in my playing when I was younger about 20 years ago). I transcribed a great deal of his bass parts off the Live: "Go for What You Know" album. His bass playing was revolutionary. Especially the stuff with Tommy Aldridge on drums. What they did together compares with what the other all time great rythmn sections have done, i.e. Scott Lafaro & Paul Motion - Bill Evans Trio, Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker - Cream, Tim Bogart & Carmine Appice - Beck Bogart and Appice, Ron Carter & Tony Williams - Miles Davis and so many others.
