This one I had been longing for. One of the most influential & innovative bassists ever FINALLY transcribed.

The song tabulature & disc playback are broken up into their individual parts (i.e.: Intro groove, verse, chorus, bridge, etc.) which makes practicing the individual pieces MUCH easier being that this format allows you to simply loop or repeat the parts continuously without breaking your playing flow. The section on the man's "gear set-up" was pretty cool, showing you all of the effects and "paths" used by Bootsy to obtain his sound. Totally Greek to me, but will probably make sense to me one day, as is usually the case when learning continuously.

In short, Man, I love it!!

fanatastic from another galaxy with bootsy highly recommended - if you play bass or in fact just love the funk - worth if for the photograph on the front alone
