  1. Jamerson was soo groovy. Very nice playing Sharay! and thanks for sticking with old school tone…perfect.

  2. He’s Legit! solid bass playing.

  3. I’m guessing Sharay’s using the the transcriptions as a guide? Really interesting if so.

  4. That’s Bass. You can tap, slap, play chords, but the bottom line is that you have to lay a solid foundation and groove. He will always get a gig by playing like that.

  5. sounds like he is using a bridge mute..

  6. really underrated style. those grooves are insane.
