JAMES JAMERSON BASS TRANSCRIPTIONS – EBOOK/PDF
Welcome to this collection of James Jamerson transcriptions. There's also some bonus Motown transcriptions at the end of the book too, including the Bob Babbitt line on Band Of Gold and Stevie Wonder's awesome keyboard bass line on Isn't She Lovely.

Now Jamerson's work has become widely appreciated thanks to Allan Slutsky's groundbreaking book, "Standing In The Shadow Of Motowns." And while that book presents around 50 or so transcriptions - either complete songs, or song fragments - that is barely scratching the surface of Jamerson's prodigious output. So over the years I've been trying to fill in some of the massive holes that exist in the transcribing of the body of work that Jamerson left behind. Some of these transcriptions are relatively easy and some are infernally difficult! One of the great things about Jamerson's musical genius is that the study of even the simpler lines can often be rewarding in terms of getting further understanding of how Jamerson created these bass lines. The transcriptions themselves are a compilation of material that mostly appeared in my weekly subscription magazine First Bass And Beyond. This includes accurate note-for-note transcription, one written in standard notation and TAB, and the other in just standard notation. 242 pages.
