Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by ZenG, Dec 23, 2016.

  1. Song:- "Can't help Myself (SugarPie Honeybunch). Key of C.

    Bassline:- Jamerson

    Notes in question:- 3rd line "can't help myself":-

    is it:-



    D,A,C # ?

    Played this a million times both ways. Still have issues with it.

    Maybe I'm doing it totally wrong. Don't know.

    Yep.Simple. But it's bugging the heck out of me.

    I think my ears are telling me C# first, then C second time.
