James Jamerson's work has become widely appreciated thanks to Allan Slutsky's groundbreaking book, "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown." 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.

I try where I can to transcribe material that you can't find in the usual places (Bass Player Magazine, books of transcriptions and so on) and I don't think any of these songs has appeared in commercial publications before.

In my head this is simply "James Jamerson Basslines" volume 1. As I am always looking to transcribe lines to songs that I haven't yet transcribed, or indeed, as happened with the Gladys Knight version of Feelin' Alright that you can find in this collection, transcribing songs that I've never really listened to closely before.

Now transcribing isn't an exact science, so at times you may find you disagree with rhythms or pitches or the way I've presented something. If so, please don't hesitate to drop me an email and let me know. That way I can refine these transcriptions over time to make them as authentic as possible. This includes accurate note-for-note transcription, one written in standard notation and TAB, and the other in just standard notation. 242 pages. --Paul Wolfe
