Bass Transcription: James Jamerson on "For Once In My Life"

Well, I'm on a bit of a Jamerson kick lately. I just can't listen to him play and be content with not knowing exactly what he's playing. And there's nothing worse than someone doing a bad Jamerson imitation. So, I transcribe.

There is already a transcription of this tune available in the SITSOM book, however, there are at least a few glaring errors in that transcription, as well as some more minor inaccuracies. Humility and experience leads me to believe there are likely as many errors in my transcription, but hey, for now, I think this is the most accurate transcription. Please let me know if you spot any mistakes.

I know this and the last one have been "basic" Jamerson, but I've got a couple more obscure goodies in the pipeline, so stay tuned.
