WHAT MAKES MOTOWN BASS MOTOWN? is Jim Stinnett’s new exploration of this much loved and highly bass-driven musical style. “Everybody digs the neat little riffs, the deep grooves, the ‘feel good’ feeling when the bass player is working his Motown bass line.” Analysis of pitch sets, rhythmic cells and more reveals the essential character of these lines. Includes eight chapters, 64 examples and full-song transcriptions of five classic hits. Written in standard notation (no tab). 72 pages.
