Freedom, Wham – bass line – transcription / notation

I’ve always enjoyed Wham bass lines. This particular track was originally played by Deon Estas, who used a status bass and Fender Jazz, not sure which he would’ve used on this recording. I used my Status Retro bass.

I’ve written out the first verse accurately, there are some minor differences in the following verses. The Intro lines and chorus seem to be consistent throughout the track. It’s a relatively simple bass line and really effective which is why it works. During the fade out at the end you hear a nice little ad lib line which I included at the end of the transcription.

Here is a link to the transcription



I’ve used a bassless backing track for this. The only bass you hear is mine.
