Josie BASS 1.jpg

Josie (Bass)

One of my favourite bands is Steely Dan. Here is the bass transcription of Chuck Rainey's great bass line from the track Josie from the album Aja (1977). Fantastic, musical bass line, doubled on guitar on the album. Becker & Fagen were going for the "Cop show" sound. There is also a great use of double stops in this line.  A very important album to own. Click HERE to buy it.


Havona BASS SOLO.jpg

Havona (Bass Solo)

Here is my transcription of Jaco Pastorius' bass solo on Havona. Havona is from the 1977 Weather Report album 'Heavy Weather'. An essential part of developing improvisation is to study and play solos. This is an extremely harmonically sophisticated solo using colour tones, odd phrase lengths and interesting rhythmic ideas. I HIGHLY recommend buying this album if you haven't already. Click HERE for a purchase link.
