More political transcriptions

Donald Trump with a supercut of him saying "China" transcribed for 5-string bass [ via Language Log ]:

Such discursive, chromatic jazz seems to lend itself nidely to spoken word. See also the transcriptions in Reich's Different Trains. These are a reversal sort of of sprachstimme. Immediately reminded me of the Palin transcription that was popular back in October 2008:

And the equally hilarious McCain transcription:

These two done by Henry Hey who has a few others on the YouTube channel sailingandmusic.
