    If yes, check this out:
    MOTOWN BACKING TRACK

    I made this yesterday. Please be honest and tell me what you think. All instruments played by me.

    I have been "shedding" a LOT on Motown lately - JAMES JAMERSON (Nuff said!)

    You pretty much nailed the motown feeling, but the structure is hard to listen till the end, It sounds like a 12 bar blues turnaround repeted over and over again.

    Nice clip, a little more mobility in the bass line (ala Jamerson) :cool:

    Don't forget... you're playing to a bass crowd here :D

    Sounds good. Will sound even better if you tune the guitar and redo that track. :)

    Nice, I like the out of tune guitar, it fits. It does seem like an endless turnaround but still fun, good job. Use real drums next time.

    The strings on my guitar are about 8 months old and rusty to the bone... I tried to tune it, but after 5 takes... You'll get the idea. ;)
