Preface i Welcome to the Playing Bass With J : Jamiroquai Edition. The book and CD contains everything needed to play Bass to some of the grooviest Bass lines recorded by various players on Jamiroquai’s albums through- out the performers career. In the book you will find both standard bass notation and TAB for each of the six tracks. Full stereo mixes of each tune to play along with for practise, Stereo Bass only tracks with a click and a two bar count in have also been provided so that the each Bass part can be heard on its own to allow the player to hear clearly what is to be played at tempo. In addition to this Standard tuning notes (E,A,D,G) have been provided. Useful points on playing each piece and the bass notation legend can also be found at the beginning of this book to aid players. Players are reminded that this is NOT an official book and that all music within may not be 100% accurate but more of close reproduction of the original playing found on the original tracks.
Canned Heat Featured in film Napoleon Dynamite. Nick Fyffe again plays Synth Bass in this track. Be aware that the tempo for the first 3 bars is a lot faster than the latter of the piece. At the end of the piece the performer is given free rain to improvise When You Gonna Learn There are many versions of this song that have been realsed for this reason I chose to put the 1992 single that was released on the album Emergency of planet Earth as it covers all sections that are in the extended/shortened versions all performed by Andrew Levy. The score and recording for the song start from when the strings enter as the meter of the Didgeridoo section is different. Runaway This song featured as a new single on the High Times album (singles 1992-2006). Performed on Electric Bass by Derrick McIntyre who also played on the track Dynamite. The song is in ternary form, with exception from the introduction and middle eight, where there is no Bass guitar. Once comfortable with the two main riffs work at them getting up to tempo then try playing along with the original. Performance Notes and Song Backgrounds Deeper Underground This song features as a single in 1998 on album synchronized. This piece was originally performed by Nick Fyffe using a Synth/Distorted Bass. The whole piece is riff based around the Aeolian mode in B. Once comfortable playing the main two bar riff try varying around the mode to add your own touches to the track. Scam Appearing on album, Return of the Space Cowboy and performed by renowned Slap Bass player Stuart Zender. The song itself is great fun to play once you get the three main rhythmic sections down there is plenty of room to improvise within the key. (Don’t) Give Hate A Chance This track has more of a disco feel to it, especially in the verses. This track is performed by Funk Bassist Derrick McIntyre and is a very tight an precise driving Bass line mixed with a Synth/Flanged Bass. This song is one of the more difficult to master due to its fast tempo. So be sure to start off at a slow speed and work up to it. Transcriptions By Jonathan Park ii
