If you have a correction or new submission, please add or edit the file directly in Github or open an issue. There's also a small selection of old video clips of Trey playing on YouTube.
Bass tabs from Brad Weiger
A trove of over 80 hand-written bass tabs has been generously made available to the community by Brad Weiger, former bassist of the tribute band The Lawn Boys. But we need your help!

Michael Fisher's "How to Play Phish" playlist
Michael started this project during the summer of 2014 as a fun way to teach himself some Phish songs.
In an effort to make the information both more freely available to anyone who wants it and easier to maintain, all transcriptions are now simple text files. This information belongs to the community, so you can download a snapshot of the entire archive (tabs, loops, and all) and save it to your hard drive at any time.
