Jeff Jacobson has been a professional music transcriber for over 25 years, having contributed transcriptions to more than 300 official note-for-note guitar songbooks for artists such as Metallica, John Mayer, Beck, Steve Vai and Taylor Swift.

Jeff has also contributed transcriptions to numerous books of notable blues and jazz artists including Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert King and Joe Pass, as well as acoustic fingerstyle virtuosos Tommy Emmanuel and Doyle Dykes. In addition, he has created original fingerstyle arrangements for multiple books, including Celtic Favorites for Open-Tuned Guitar, as well as classical guitar arrangements for numerous collections, such as Star Wars for Classical Guitar [Full book listing].

Also a professional musician, Jeff began playing guitar at the age of 5, and spent the first part of his career as a sideman, despite having been a songwriter since grade school. In 2003, a live recording of the very first original song he played at an open mic was selected for a "best of" compilation
CD. And from that point through 2010, he was a fixture on the New York City singer/songwriter scene, known for his folk/pop songs with shades of classical guitar.

Jeff is currently transcribing full-time, specializing in creating custom guitar transcriptions which are both accurate and user-friendly. He also creates sheet music for a myriad of indie singer/songwriters.
