Patrice Rushen - Forget Me Nots (What bass??)

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Bassline_Delux, May 8, 2005.

  1. The title pretty much says it all. I would have posted this in recordings, but the question is pertaining to the bass used so I posted here, correct me if I misposted.

    I heard Freddy Washington played a Precision on that track.

    I can't confirm the bass but it damn sure sounded like a Precision!
  4. Yeah, that sure sounds like a Precision on the recording. Love that tune and that slap line.

    Does anyone have a transcription of that bass line? I've tried to figure it out by ear, but I've never got it right; there's a lot going on. Thanks.

    **Ready Freddie Washington on Precision!
  7. The full line was transcribed in a Bass Player mag' a few years ago, the one with Doug Wimbish on the cover, from the Jungle Funk days.
    Its a nice line to play, I've played it in a band and I've got me playing it on mini disc somewhere !

  8. Yup, I remember reading it was a P bass also.

    Yup, it was Freddy with a Precision. Anyone know the details on his Precision (maple/rosewood? ash/alder?) I'm pretty sure it's burst but forget the rest...

    Looks like it might be a Precision after all.

    I read an interview in Bass Player about that particular song and he said it was recorded with a Fender Precision.

    I read a post that said that said that it was a precision, according to an interview in an old Bass Player magazine.

  16. NO!!! Its not a Pbass, its a synthesizer. You guys are thinking of the Seinfeld theme. THAT was done with a P bass.

    He said he had EMG pickups in it.
    I think it was a burst with a maple neck.
    I also think that issue of BP had the transcription in it.

    He actually used the early prototype of a fretless Conklin GT-7 on that track. . . not a lot of people know that.
