    Hi all,

    Just finished a transcription, cover and quick analysis of the 1968 classic ‘Reflections’ by Diana Ross and The Supremes. The great James Jamerson on bass.

    Head over to Jamerson Analysed for this transcription, as well as a load of other Jamerson tracks broken down and analysed.

    Good stuff, thanks and great bass playing too.
    James Jamerson and perhaps Sir Paul McCartney singlehandedly changed the function of a bass in a band.
    Their bass lines and rhythms added so much to the songs. A lot of the songs they play on all center around the bass.
    Those two guys and perhaps Glenn Hughes & Larry Graham were the biggest influences on my career.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. Both Jamerson and McCartney are up there for me. Just incredible, and an endless source of inspiration.

    Hey, I’ve got a question for you. I’ve been doing so research on this track after hearing it for the first time in years. I love this song.

    Is there a drummer on this track? I was listening to it, and I always thought there was, but now I think there might only be two tambourine players. I don’t hear any cymbals, or kick. Just that snare which could be a tambourine and the other tambourine.

    I looked on Wikipedia and saw the personnel listing, which includes guitar. I don’t hear any guitar.

    I can hear what sounds like a pedalled hi-hat in the verses, but not a full kit. Sounds like some guitar in the chorus'.
