Stevie Wonder: “Higher Ground” Isolated Synth Bass and Drums

My love runs deep for synth bass. Today’s clip comes from the one and only Stevie Wonder. In this one, we hear Stevie’s isolated Moog Bass on the classic track, “Higher Ground”.

Stevie is one of the baddest to ever touch synth bass. I was lucky enough to find a version with drums, so we have some rhythm behind that pulsating synth bass. You can hear the “slop” that Stevie brings when he plays, which is a major part of that “Stevie sound” during his “Classic Period”.

There are a few other Isolated clips floating around for this track. So, if you want to work on your synth bass chops, it’s all there for you!
