Jimmy Johnson transcription

Recommended Posts

Here is a quickly done Jimmy Johnson transcription, I say quickly done as I have added no dynamic markings as it is so particular to the man that the best way to cop the nuances is to have a close listen whilst watching the notes go by.
What I love about this bassline is that it goes from very straightforward and solid through to death defying acrobatics in a big outro section all, with no loss of groove or feel. Every note chosen by Jimmy serves the song in a way that is utterly selfless.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do....

Jake

edit:
btw the album is James Taylor Live

A welcome addition to my downloaded charts file!! Great perfromance and some classic Flim fills (bar 37 and those last few bars you mentioned). I have always loved the way he uses the whole range of his bass in some of his fills. And never forget the power of the straight crotchet!!!! Now I wanna go listen to more Flim Johnson!!! Curses!
