MY BACKGROUND
Welcome! I have been transcribing professionally for over 25 years, creating the official note-for-note guitar songbooks for artists such as Metallica, John Mayer, Steve Vai, and Joe Pass. Please see below for a full listing.


CUSTOM GUITAR TRANSCRIPTIONS - Accurate and User-friendly
I specialize in creating accurate, user-friendly transcriptions, and enjoy tailoring them to fit your needs. For a no-obligation quote, please feel free to email me at jeff@jeffjacobson.net. I always reply same day to all inquiries. [samples]

  • Please attach an mp3 or m4a of the song you'd like transcribed. (Or include a YouTube link.)

  • For partial songs and solos, please send full mp3 with track times indicated (e.g. 1:12 – 1:55).

  • Your choice of PDF, Sibelius or Guitar Pro files.

  • Payment accepted exclusively via PayPal. (A PayPal account is not required.)

  • Minimum charge is US$55.

  • Please note I never resell custom transcriptions. Yours is yours alone.



ORIGINAL CHORD/MELODY ARRANGEMENTS (pick- or fingerstyle)
In addition to transcribing books of jazz and classical chord/melody pieces, I have also created multiple books of original arrangements in many styles (see below) and would be happy to create one for your favorite song.


SONGWRITERS
I love working directly with indie songwriters and have created many artists' sheet music and lead sheets. [samples]


SIBELIUS LESSONS
I offer lessons via Skype on effectively using Sibelius, including workarounds for guitar not found in the manual.


Thanks for visiting! Looking forward to hearing from you: jeff@jeffjacobson.net
