Here You gonna find some transcriptions. There are just a few, but I will update this site regularly, so make sure to come back. 🙂 Some of these titles are found in different versions on the internet or are were published in books. My reason to do the transcription on my own is because I found a mistake (I thougt I did :)), I got a different version, or I have a different interpretation. And of course getting detailed in touch with that song. If You have any suggestions, find mistakes, please contact me. If you enjoy it, it would be nice if you make a small donation. Thank You!
In my opinion, this is the greatest bass part in the Simon and Garfunkel repertoire. It was originally recorded by Joe Osborn, a member of the famous Wrecking Crew. This is Pino Palladino's version of it, played live on the "Old Friends: Live On Stage" album from 2004, recorded at the Madison Square Garden, New York. Also available on DVD. Check it out 🙂
This song was recorded first by Marvin Gaye in 1962. On this Version, from the year 1983 from Paul Young's album "No Parlez", Pino Palladino playes this outstanding bass line on his Muicman Stingray Fretless Bass. The best thing on that Song besides the Intro is the build up from whole notes to a sixteenth notes groove at the end.
Everybody who knows Quentin Tarantino's Movie Django Unchained knows this song. I got a name was is the fifth and final studio album by American singer-songwriter Jim Croce relased posthumous in 1973. On this track, Funk Brother and Motown legend Bob Babbit plays this great bass line.
Mac Miller's posthumous Album "Circles" is the best thing that happend in 2020. It is a masterpiece you can listen from the beginning til the end without getting bored. There is a very tasteful Bass Solo with a great feel and absolutly no overplaying on the track "Surf". And: The Solo is panned to the left in the original recording, so you can use it as a backing track!
This is one of my favourite John Mayer tracks from his best Album "Continuum" out of 2006.. Beside it features two Bass Players (Willie Weeks plays the 8th Note Groove and Pino Palladino the add on's), I like John Mayer's short Solo and transcribed it.
I've always been a fan of Bakithi Kumalo's Bass playing on the Graceland Album by Paul Simon. Diamonds on the soles of her shoes is one of my favourite bass lines with a great slapping part in it. Make sure to check out Bakithi's lesson on Youtube, in which he explains and shows how he plays it.
