Some tasty bass playing on this little gem from Joss Stone’s 2003 ‘Soul Sessions’. As ever any mistakes let me know. Enjoy!
Some classic early Robben Ford (plus brothers) 12/8 blues in this transcription from the 1972 album “The Charles Ford Band”. Stanley Poplin navigates the blues changes with his typical solid yet very musical playing style. Theres a lot to learn from his playing. More to follow. Thanks as ever to William for corrections / suggestions. Enjoy.
Thanks to William from Talkbass for this rousing little blues rock number from Janis Joplin’s ‘Full Tilt Boogie Band’. Check it out and see what you think 🙂 More to follow.
Quick little transcription here of this B.B. King tune from his 1998 ‘Blues on the Bayou’ album. Nothing fancy really just some good ‘ol pentatonic-y blues bass playing with some lovely little chromatic walks
around the V IV I V at the end of each twelve bar. Enjoy.
A short but sweet transcription featuring some cheeky playing by David Hood. Lovely little bassline groove moving between chords I & IV (C to F) and a cheeky grooving melodic middle section over the same chords. Mmm mm. Enjoy. As ever if I’ve made any glaring (or not so glaring) errors let me know.
The holidays are upon us so trying to get my ‘transcribe on’. Here is a slightly crazy psychedelic version of (I’m Your) Hoochie Coochie Man from the 1968 ‘Electric Mud’ album released on Cadet Concepts (subsidiary of Chess records). Some great blues bass playing by Louis Satterfield! Thanks to William for looking it over.
Right…it’s been too long since I posted anything up here so I’ve just stuck up the following transcriptions – hope you enjoy them 🙂 You can find them (funnily enough) on the transcriptions page….
1) Little Red Rooster – Robben Ford (tasty jazz-blues)
2) Midnight Hour – Wilson Picket (classical soul)
3) The Boss – James Brown (cranking funk tune)
More to follow now that the holidays beckon. Thanks as ever to William for looking these over and offering suggestions / improvements.
So, it’s been a pretty crazy few months really – the Pimptones album “Midnight Feast of Jazz” has been released on Record Kicks with lots of nice reviews being written and Sharks Took The Rest played on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury last weekend. Phew!
Term has nearly finished at college so expect a raft of new transcriptions in the very near future! 🙂
Here’s a cheeky little Blues transcription for you. Some tasty playing by Roscoe Beck on this sweet Robben Ford version. Enjoy. More Robben Ford to come in the next few weeks. Luverly! 🙂
