    Greetings TBers,

    I've searched various sites and the tabs files on TB.com, but cannot find:crying: the music or tabulature for "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers. Can anyone direct me to a site or post the music (or at least the bass solo) here.


  2. Here's a helping hand for you, my friend. Enjoy!:bassist:

    To Jim Campbell and gui****efector:

    Dearest Bass Brothers,

    Thanks to Jim and "gui****..." for your rapid responses in providing sheet music and tabulature for "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers. You make me proud to be a fellow TBer. I am grateful beyond words. I really appreciate your timely assistance.


  4. My pleasure! Any way I can help. Now... if you could find the tabs or sheet for "I'll always love my mama" by The Intruders, I'd be eternally grateful.;)

    My second most favorite Intruders' song only after "Cowboys to Girls." Wish I had it at my fingertips.:bawl: I'll ask my instructor at my next lesson on Tuesday.

  6. Mmmmh, sounds me interesting.
    I love the bassline.

    The only issue is that here the bass is not very easy to hear correctly, especially when they are singing.

    I will try to write it, but I cannot promise.
    Anyway, if some of you have a version which is much clear for the bass part, please tell me (or a cover if you feel it is really perfect regarding the original, but I am not confident in covers to be matching perfectly the original).

    As my internet connection is veeeeery slow (10 minutes to download one youtube video), I cannot pick many to try myself :meh:
  7. If even you have the mp3 on your computer, and the quality is better (at least the bass easier to hear), please contact me by mp and I will give you my email address where you could send it to me.

    :help: I'm having a bit of trouble (Internet connection is awful). I don't know what the time signature it is in, can anybody help? Thanks!
  9. "I'll Take You There" is in standard 4/4. The note length in the tab didn't quite line up with the notes, but if you listen, I think you'll get it.
