Been working on it and just missing some key components..
Any help is appreciated.
I finally picked up that album on cd last week (along with Party 'til You're Broke...much of their stuff is being re-issued as part of something called the Disco 40 Series.
I also have Camouflage on order.
"Hollywood" from Ask Rufus would be a good tune to learn...
I actually own that album when it first came out.
I think Bobby Watson is the bassist on the tune.. Don't quote me please cause I would have to go thru the collection and that would take a minute.. Love that band for days as I got to see them live..
Oh man the memories.
I'll finish it up next weekend.
Looked at the liners...the band is listed (with Watson on bass), no individual song credits.
Horns are by Seawind (popular Horn section in that time frame...decent band, too, in a Pop vibe).
Additional handclaps are credited to Louis & George Johnson.
Louis Johnson does play bass on "Tonight We Love" from Party 'til You're Broke (obviously...it's his signature slap tone).
I like the way the line in the first measure changes in measure 19 and thereafter. Instead of the Bb, it's B natural. The B natural, combined with the E natural, gives the Fmin chord an interesting sound. I had never heard this song before.
Great Job Lee!!
Yeah it's so cool...
Lee is the man...
So...how do you guys play the opening 3 bars?
Do you mean fingerings/tabs?
If yes, There are a few ways. I can write them out if you want
Chris...you are the man, too!
I have "my way"...involves an Open "D".
I was just curious about you guys.
(I have not listened to the tune hard enough to decipher where Bobby Watson fingered it).
Of course, those with a 5-string would do it differently.
The video is not available in my country, so I can't hear what he's doing. I'm guessing "1" from my examples.
I would probably choose "2" as I don't like to use open strings ( a sound thing )
Jaco would've probably chosen "3"
Very cool analysis.
In my old anal daze...I would have chose a mixture of Option 1 & Option 2.
No open strings back then, either. Play in position using all 4 fingers, etc.
Today...I would go for Option 1.
I get your point about Jaco & Option 3.
Jaco does use Open D & Open G a lot, though.
So, you mean I'm... you didn't just imply that...
Hmm, combo of 1 & 2 should have been there too (it's 1:30 here, half working brain)
That disco big hit
Ain't no stopping us
That bassline uses a B not a Bb inside the F min chord
But probably not the maj 7 E IIRC
The very first measure uses Bb. After that it switches to the B natural. I meant the open E on the bottom. The ascending line goes up to the Eb (and then F).
