Hi Guys,

Does anyone know the bassline to this classic track?? - I'm struggling to pick it up on my Dansette with my old cloth ears :) !!

The dots, tabs, or even just the chords would be helpful?? - all donations gratefully received!

All the best,

Randy did a couple of versions of this song, the later version on the Feeling Good album with Joe Sample is slower than the original.

I haven't got a chart but I've played it a few times in the past, shouldn't be too difficult to sort something when time allows.

In fact you can download it from here if you install sibelius scorch first.

The original, by a guy called Richard Torrance, is pretty good too. Somewhere on YouTube land there is a vid of him performing it as some wedding in a marquee - great version, really good vibe to it. Doesn't look like he got too many royalties for it!

Thanks so much Guys - your help is & will be very much appreciated - it's hard for me to pick things out with my musically 'cloth ears' - but as bad as I am, I just love trying to do as good as job as possible for the sake of the other Guys in the band - even if it's just one note - as long as it's the right note!

Thanks again,

All the best

Tim
