    This is probably my favourite disco groove of all time. Great work from Jimmy Williams on a track that nearly got given to The O'Jays: McFadden & Whitehead - Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now bass transcription PDF
  2. The great pedal board clearout begins... Aguilar TLC, bought new by me in 2013. Gigged many times, but still in good condition - some light scuffing on the sides but no chips in the paintwork. Includes box and manual FULL DISCLOSURE: I sold this once before, but it turned out that it didn't work with batteries (I'd always run it off a 9V supply). I've since had it repaired and the battery snap now works. Repair guy said that the battery connector had been wired to the PCB incorrectly! £110 now £100 securely packed and tracked to your door.

    I always thought that this was an American band... Here's a classic slice of US soul from Merseyside: The Real Thing - 'You To Me Are Everything' bass transcription pdf

    This is a tune that appears periodically on set lists and always appears to have fallen out of my brain. Delightfully sloppy bass playing from Ronnie Wood: Rod Stewart - 'Maggie May' bass transcription pdf

    we can work it out. Chaka Khan

    This is such a great version, Greg Phillinganes plays some ridiculous stuff! I seem to remember some lengthy debates on here as to whether or not Anthony Jackson was doubling the synth or not... Anyway, found this lurking on my hard drive. Not one of my transcriptions and I haven't played through it, but it looks good - I tried to find the original link but couldn't.

    I've collected an embarrassing amount of instructional material over the years; some books are brilliant, others somewhat mediocre, but there's one in particular that I think is by far the worst...

    Apreciation

    FWIW I don't think it's necessarily a purely British thing, I have a similar experience with Talkbass, YouTube and my website - people are always very quick to point out when something is wrong, but more reluctant to give praise.

    Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

    Great choice of tune, this was on my list so you've saved me the trouble. Cheers!

    Taking My Playing To The Next Level

    At the risk of being nauseatingly self-promoting, I wrote a few articles about how to practise; finding a teacher, time management and staying motivated, because I struggle with all of those things and often find myself stuck in a rut and frustrated that my playing isn't where it should be after 18 years... I'd give a big +1 to Chris' suggestion of getting lessons, it's good to have somebody else to hold you accountable for your playing and practice. Skype has really opened things up so you can get a lesson with pretty much anyone you want. Links are here: • Find a teacher • Tracking your practice/time management • Removing obstacles to practising • Making new habits stick
