NEW AIDAN HAMPSON TRANSCRIPTION EBOOK: JAMES JAMERSON


Arguably the greatest, most influential bass player ever, James Jamerson was the uncredited session bassist on nearly all releases from Motown Records in the 1960s. A member of the core studio-musicians group informally known as the Funk Brothers, Jamerson drove the evolution of the Motown style as much as any other artist. He also led the transition from the acoustic bass to the electric "Fender Bass."

Here are the classic bass lines he played on 13 beloved hit records from 1964 to 1971, accompanying Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and more.

Standard notation and TAB. 45 pages.

SECRET 83:
KEEP THE COUNT


Creating a New Type of Success

One of the best pieces of advice for musicians is to count all the time while playing. Keeping the count allows you to improve your sightreading, be a better ensemble player, and know where you are in the music at all times.

When you sightread, you must count as if your life depends on it. You can never stop the count while reading unfamiliar music. If you get tired of counting, you should just count with even more concentration. Subdivide your count to match the fastest notes on the page. If there are eighth notes in your music, then count eighth notes—including in the bars that have only larger note values. If you see sixteenth notes, then subdivide your count into sixteenths.

The counting process needs to be worked on at every practice session and can actually redefine what it means to practice a sequence successfully.

SECRET 84:
DEVELOP RITUALS


Preparing for a Focused and Calm Playing Experience

Beginning a practice session can take a big adjustment for many bass players. Making the transition from your daily activities to your practice room is not always easy. This transition can be helped by having a series of activities you use to set the tone for your practicing. These activities become your personal bass rituals.

In the world of elite sports rituals are commonplace. Olympic track stars, major league baseball players, and touring golf professionals can all be seen going through highly personalized routines during competition. These rituals keep them in control when the pressure is on.

Like athletes, musicians need to feel calm and highly focused to perform well. You can go through a specific protocol each day—just before you practice.
