  1. Includes breakdowns of: Get The Funk Out Ma Face - The Brothers Johnson Get On The Floor - Michael Jackson Stomp! - The Brothers Johnson I Keep Forgettin' - Michael McDonald Reach Out - George Duke
  2. Thanks! I look a bit different these days, haha. 👴🏻 My P-bass (still the only I've had) is a Fender Classic 50s vibe*, bought from this very forum in 2010 I think. It's probably my most recorded bass, every engineer I've worked with has loved it. *Is that the model? I can't find it online anymore. It's Mexican-made, and was highly sought-after at the time - I think they were mostly made around 2007.
  3. Updated an old transcription! Now available in standard notation and tab (and corrected some errors). Jamiroquai - Mr Moon [notation / tab] Original bass: Stuart Zender Transcriptions archive
  4. Been a while since my last transcription! Here's a classic that's been done many times. However, I just wasn't happy with the quality of some of the transcriptions I could find out there, so when a student requested this one, I quickly put together my own transcription. Queen - Another One Bites The Dust [notation / tab] Original bass: John Deacon Transcriptions archive
  5. Quick Lick 6 - Left-Hand Muted 16ths Contents: 0:00 Demo 0:47 Intro 1:51 Context 2:18 Muting Techniques 3:15 Intro to LH Muting 3:59 Breakdown 6:56 Outro
  6. edit: posted something but was about the wrong song, ignore this!
  7. Sure! My default setting is something like this:
  8. The Meters - People Say [notation / tab] Original bass: George Porter Jr. Love this tune. A lesson in understated funk. My go at it is slightly less understated, but it's just so fun to fill over! Transcriptions archive
  9. Coldplay - Adventure of a Lifetime [notation / tab] Original bass: Guy Berryman Had to learn this one for a gig. Although the bassline remains almost the same throughout, there's that one fill that sounds a bit like Bernard Edwards. Transcriptions archive
  10. Ah thanks! Glad you like the approach.
  11. Quick Lick 5 - Double-Stop Slap Contents: 0:00 Demo 0:38 Intro 1:38 Breakdown 7:19 Outro
  12. Pretty sure Louis Johnson played 'Sunset Driver', an MJ b-side, with this tuning.
  13. Quick Lick 4 - Shake It! (a.k.a. those trills that only bass players seem to do) Transcription & backing track available for Patreon subscribers. Contents: 0:00 Demo 0:40 Intro 1:51 Breakdown 2:50 Tips 4:53 Outro
  14. For those that would like the transcription, head over to the transcriptions page on my website.
  15. John Legend feat. BloodPop - 'A Good Night' [notation / tab] Original bass: Ely Rise (keyboard/programmed) Another wedding request. Tailor-made to be a first dance, which is a bit cynical tbh, but that's how the industry works! Original bass is definitely a virtual instrument played on keyboard, which means some of the jumps are a bit tricky if played on electric. A bit repetitive too... but hopefully other bass players will find this when in need of a quick chart at some point! All other transcriptions here
  16. New one up today, in which I give a brief explainer of double thumb technique and how I approach it. Transcription & backing track: https://www.patreon.com/huwfoster Contents 0:00 Demo 0:38 Intro 1:20 Technique 3:38 Breakdown 6:52 Outro
  17. Rudimental feat. John Newman - 'Feel The Love' [notation / tab] Original bass: Renell Shaw (breakdown only - the rest is programmed synth) Decided to transcribe this one as it's a request at a wedding I'm playing this week. Synth interpreted for bass guitar with octave pedal and other FX for the majority of the song, then clean electric bass for the breakdown. All other transcriptions here
  18. Lizzo - 'Juice' [notation / tab] Not sure who the original bass player is! Two people credited on the album, so it's either Nate Mercereau, Ricky Reed, or both! Short video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ9F1gMnyb2/
  19. Cory Wong feat. Tom Misch - 'Cosmic Sans' [notation / tab] Original bass by Cory himself. A few overdubs, so in the transcription and the video I've collated everything into one part. All other transcriptions here
  20. We've all heard it a million times, but a student of mine just got a 5-string and I found the isolated bass track. Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars - 'Uptown Funk' [notation / tab] Original bass by Jamareo "Jam" Artis All other transcriptions here
  21. Sounds lush Tiernan! I'm after a fretless at the moment, but this is out of my budget for now. What's the jazz standard you're playing in the second clip? It's on the tip of my tongue, can't quite remember it....
  22. Teena Marie - 'I Need Your Lovin' [notation / tab] Original bass by Allen McGrier. Great bassline! The bass part and the song in general sound to me like something Rick James would write, which makes sense as he was Teena's mentor. Video here, although unfortunately WMG have blocked it in most countries. If you have a VPN, go wild!
  23. Cheers Tom! Good couple of bits of advice.
