THE Best Motown Book (6/7/2008)
This is by far the most accurate and in depth book for learning the legendary Jammerson style. Do yourself a favor, BUY THIS BOOK!! It will change your outlook on electric bass. There''s simply no other book on the market like this.

Gittin'' it! (2/13/2008)
Once you''ve mastered this book then you''ll be gittin'' it just like the man himself...I''ve had it for nearly twenty years now and I''m still learning different aspects of Jamerson''s style. Not for the faint hearted, but well worth the money all the same.

THIS BOOK IS TOTALLY ADDICTING. I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN FOR A MOMENT. THE HISTORY LESSON IS FANTASTIC, BUT THE MUSIC GIVE IS PRICELESS. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR.......BUY IT ALREADY AND GROOVE LIKE THE GODFATHER OF FUNK BASS.

It doesn't get any better than this. Must see the movie. Jamerson and his crew were the sound of Motown

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! (7/26/2003)
I received this book as a gift and what a gift it is, I,ve always liked the phenom grooves of motown but I didn't put in any thought of who played them. The book is great it gives an in depth history behind the music and a section where a lot of guest players cop the groove and lay down tha transcribed pages on the second half of the book which includes two cds that you can continually refer to. gueat players include John Patitucci, Marcus Miller, Gerald Veasley,the late John Entwistle, Anthony Jackson and many more. I highly recommend this book for all players of any style, and it would be a good guide for players doing originals that want to serve the song but also want to make the lines they play interesting and integral to the tune.
