Hello everyone, since I started playing bass when I was 14 I always had difficulties transcribing basslines by ear. When I was younger I always asked a friend to transcribe basslines for me. That friend thought me the beginnings on bass even though he was a guitar player. the last few years, after I had a break in playing bass, I really want to do it myself but I still struggle and I am insecure about it. For example. I’m now trying to transcribe the song “Is this love” by Bob Marley and the Wailers. I figured out the first bars but then to me it gets complicated because Aston Barret uses a lot of notes in between the root notes and those are lost to my ears! Somehow it gets mixed up with the lyrics and guitar and I can’t hear them clean. I wonder if this is normal and I’m starting to doubt my ears and I would really like all of your input to get me past this point! Thanx in advance...!
