The Lemon Song - John Paul Jones' Complete Classic Bass Line (Transcription and TAB)

This is one of my favorite John Paul Jones' bass line, along with all the other songs from the album"Led Zeppelin II".  On this song, JPJ proves that he is quite an accomplish bass player even though he was only 23 years old at the time. By then, he had worked extensively in studio and had several years of touring under his belt.

One of The Lemon Song highlight is JPJ killer bass solo with its flawless execution. Let's not forget his seamless control of the fast double time feel, genuine blues phrasing and funky feel and grooves. All that mastery showcased within a single song.

I have revisited and updated the transcription I had done for the sound-alike recording below.
The bass line of this song alone taught me so much about blues phrasing, funky rhythms and grooving. This song contains many bass lessons within itself. I hope you will learn as much as I did from the JPJ's masterful performance.

Keith Urban - John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16 - Isolated Bass

Today I got something a little different.
It's not exactly an Isolated bass track. But I mixed the bass loud and up front in the mix, so you could hear the nuances and dead notes used for this bass line.

I thought It was more interesting to hear the bass in context, so I mixed all the other instruments in, but much lower in the mix.

This is NOT the original Keith Urban bass track, but my note-for-note performance, that I had the pleasure to record for a sound-alike version of the hit song.

I had fun doing it, I really like the song and I think it came out pretty well. So I thought I'd share it with you, so you can have a listen and tell me what you think.
