Bass Transcription JOSIE from AJA Steely Dan.

Hi All.

I thought I'd share with you a transcription I did of one of my all time favourite bass lines.

Josie by Steely Dan. This features on the AJA album (1977). The bass player on this album is the great Chuck Rainey with Jim Keltner on drums. What a team!

The bass part was actually written out on the session by Walter Becker and he doubles the bass line on guitar. According to Donald Fagen the wanted the "TV cop show sound"........

I hope you enjoy it. If you've never heard it before, I URGE you to search it out. VERY funky & VERY musical.
