"I Gotcha" by Joe Tex

Here is my transcription, with tabs, of a fun and groovy bass line. Unfortunately I do not know who the original bass player is on this track. It has a rather repetitive pattern with little variations, but it is fun to play. The song was recorded in 1972, and it is also featured in the official soundtrack to the Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs. enjoy!

Fun and simple solo that can be played on bass, as written, or an octave higher. It works well with or without FX, especially in a drum, bass & guitar combo. Have fun with it. Here is a video of the play-along at regular speed, and at half speed, solo.
