    For anyone interested, I have the original bass tracks played by James Jamerson and others, soloed from the original Motown multitracks, on my site. Hear every note these Motown masters played !

    Very cool. As for Jamerson using only the 'hook'.......there's some notes being played that has to be another finger being used.

    On "What's Going On", he sure had me fooled into thinking more notes were actually being played!

    And wow, listening to Wilton Felder soloed, his technique isn't quite as tight as it appeared to be although still a fantastic bassline.

    Damn good stuff! An invaluable resource for those seeking the 'answer' to some of Jamerson's classics!

    Very, very cool! Thank you.

    Do you take requests?:)
    I've been transcribing "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. I've got a lot of it, but the bass is kind of far down in the mix in places. It would be great to hear that one.

    Thanks again.

    Wow. Thanks.

    I have to download them before someone changes their mind. :)

    This is an incredible set of gems.

    I agree with DWBass. I thought Jamerson was playing way more notes on "What's Goin' On", might have made learning it easier if I could have heard that soloed track.

    Thanks Rick. I've enjoyed you Jaco files, as well. Anyone know how to download these on a Mac?

    Having listened to James Jamerson live at the old Regal Theatre in Chicago he was my inspiration to play bass. This contribution is huge! I've got to ask...do you have access to the master tracks?

    I don't think there is any other was to do that.
     
  19. Hmmm...that's exactly what I thought when I heard the soloed track (I learned it by ear before the SITSOM book came out).
