James Jamerson's improvised bass line on Darling Dear (The Jackson 5, Third Album, 1970) I used tab for this one, because Jamerson used a lot of unconventional fingerings. In my opinion, it is essential to use those fingerings to get closer to Jamerson's sound. Of course, I wasn't at the session, so this is only an educated guess. YMMV.

Wilton Felder's bass part on I Want You Back (The Jackson 5, Diana Ross presents the Jackson 5, 1969) This bass line was probably written by a Motown arranger, in the style of James Jamerson.

Avishai Cohen's bass solo on Remembering, (Avishai Cohen, At Home, 2005) I transcribed the head and Avishai Cohen's bass solo, but I recently noticed that Avishai Cohen has made the chart available on his web site for $5, so I took my transcription down. Please support Avishai and go buy the chart on his site.
