Have you wanted to learn those sweet, sweet thumpy Animals As Leaders riffs but haven’t been able to figure out the tabs because you’re, like, a human? Well, you’re in luck, because Sheet Happens Publishing just announced the release of The Complete Guitar Transcription for the band’s 2016 LP The Madness of Many! Are we dreaming?
The book features the 10 tracks from the album, written in tablature and notation formats. According to Sheet Happens, “The transcription was overseen and edited by AAL’s virtuoso guitarists Javier Reyes and Tosin Abasi and promises to be the most accurate and comprehensive transcription you will find for these massive songs”. Now don’t get us wrong, these are some hard songs, but this tab book is really the only tool you will need to get the job done.
There is also a very special “Deluxe Bundle” of the book available, limited to 250 copies. It includes some sick goodies like: The Complete Guitar Transcription (signed/hand-numbered by Javier and Tosin), custom 4GB USB card with tracks from the album without guitars and with tracks missing only the guitar solos (a seriously great tool to learn these songs to), 3 AAL “Primetone” jazz picks, and an instant digital download of the tab book (eBook, Guitar Pro files). Holy moly, they sure know how to take care of their fans!
If you’re not aware, Sheet Happens is the creation of Luke Hoskin and Tim MacMillar, guitarists from the kick-ass Canadian band Protest the Hero. They’ve put out tab books for albums from bands like August Burns Red, Intervals, Revocation, The Dear Hunter, and so many more, all with an emphasis on accuracy and functionality. It’s pretty dang incredible to think of all the work that goes into these tab books, but rest assured, it’s well worth it. Grab your copy here!
