L161 Disco bass w open string run

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Disco bass with open string run, Im playing the bassline in Bb and Ab and using the open A string as part of the fast run – works fine for many reasons: its goes so fast that you actually dont hear the note, A is chromatic note to both Bb and Ab, I kinda mute the note too with my left hand…
James Jamerson did these open string runs a lot – many soul songs were in “jazz” keys – F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db etc

I wish there was this sort of thing when I started in the mid 60’s. I really like this line.

I used to figure all this type of stuff out, what a pain.
I’ve decided to contribute. Thanks Gabriel
Thx man
