I Got A Woman – Jerry Scheff Bass PDF Transcription – Elvis Presley

I Got A Woman, is a standard three chord blues song. As with many live songs Jerry Scheff took the bass part and elevated it. This is one of my favourites of his. There are some great bass runs using the standard blues scale in E, which made it a good track to study closely.

The bass line is from the That’s The Way It Is recordings, taken from the show August 13, 1970 Dinner Show. While the backing is based in the 12, August dinner show. The 13th, Jerry does a nice blues run as it comes out of the stops in the middle section. Generally, it’s a frantic bass line for such a simple song, it’s just so good, not to commit it to paper as well.
