Walk A Mile In My Shoes – Jerry Scheff bass transcription PDF

Walk A Mile In My Shoes, is quite a funky tune and bass line for an Elvis track. Probably due to Jerry Scheff’s bass and Bob Lanning’s drumming. This track makes good sixteenth and syncopated reading. Apart from the bass break (which I realised I’ve play slightly wrong on the video) Jerry’s playing is rarely the same in two bars. Jerry said he used to listen to the rest of the band, brass, guitarist and drums (obviously) and follow them. Is quite evident looking into this he does just that hear. With some rhythmic parts following the vocal, which others follow and instrument. Bar 60 the bass follows the glockenspiel as an example.
