MARTHA REEVES - HEATWAVE - EBOOK/PDF

MARTHA REEVES - HEATWAVE - EBOOK/PDF
This transcription is James Jamerson's bass line on Heatwave by Martha and The Vandellas. Although this is a relatively easy bass line it was difficult to transcribe. Jamerson probably recorded this with his double bass and the early Motown recordings were recorded direct to a primitive 4-track recorder. So the bass was really hard to hear. To compensate I used a version of Heatwave that I have on a now defunct series of Karaoke CDs that Motown issued featuring the original recordings. (Each CD had two versions of the track, the original and then a remix with the lead vocals stripped off). So I transcribed off that as the bass was easier to hear. And when I came to correlate that with the original recording I found it was a different length! So had to adjust again. What's interesting is, if you have a listen to the Heatwave original, there's a tape splice at around the 2:27 mark where they've literally chopped out some bars, probably by physically cutting the tape and then rejoining it. Have a listen; very intriguing. This transcription includes accurate note-for-note transcription, one written in standard notation and TAB, and the other in just standard notation. 13 pages altogether.
