  1. alright...i'm pretty sure this is probably one of the most famous basslines of all time...but does anyone know who played it? Was it Jamerson? is it Carol Kaye's little notebook?
  2. NOT James Jamerson or Carol Kaye or Bob Babbitt- there was an article in BP about it- it was played by a session saxophone player who doubled on bass- have to dig out the BP issue.....
  3. here we go-
    Bass Player July 98, p83;
    Wilton Felder (saxophone player of The Crusaders) played it, using a 60's Telecaster bass strung with flats.

    brilliant bassline :cool:
  4. i'm going to need one of those...

    Nah, you can play it on just about anything. Wilton Felder is best known for his sax (and bass) work for the Crusaders but he was also on some early Steely Dan work.
