Hey guys, I'm starting a new project (again). This one's all about the good ol' 60's and 70's R&B/Soul from Studios like Motown, Hot Wax, Invictus and Co. Because I'm trying to get more things done in less time, I'll be focusing exclusively on bass and won't bother with any guitar arrangements for the most part. All bass parts are personally transcribed by myself however, so as to ensure they are as correct as possible. I'll also release songs in 3-packs from now on, so you'll get more songs at once but you'll also need to wait a little longer for the next release. I won't put up a list with the tracks, so it's going to be a surprise when it comes out, but I'll always give the pack a title beforehand and provide some clues to the content. Enjoy, guys!

Hi everyone, I'm working on my first CDLC ever (You Can't Hurry Love by The Supremes) and I'm thinking about many more Motown old school classics for future posts. The thing is, I'm a bassist so I started with a bass tab only. And when I started trying to add a rhythm guitar track I had a really hard time and simply gave up. So I wanna know if any guitar player is willing to help me with this project of Motown Classics? Maybe a pack of 4-5 songs to start with. Cheers Fred
Now that I got the original releases (one, two, three) out of the way, here's a few more. They definitely aren't motown, and probably aren't strictly soul, funk, or R&B, but I figured of the social groups this is probably the closest I've got. The main things these probably need help with is tones (probably especially on guitar), but it's also possible that the tabs aren't perfect. First is Runaway by Jamiroquai (links to .psarc and GP tab). Guitar probably needs a tone for the intro, then the rest of the song. Bass is really hard to play, but on my most recent attempt Rocksmith not detection was ridiculously forgiving and I got a 98%. The one before that was 94%, but even that probably overstates how comfortable I feel with this song. Next is Billie Jean by Michael Jackson (.psarc, GP tab). There's already a version on here, but people were complaining about the sync, the main download link doesn't work (though other people have provided a backup), bridge looks wrong, there's no guitar, etc., so I figured I'd make my own version. On guitar, I could see it needing three tones (though maybe it only needs one or two): one for the chords, a second for the chorus and latter parts of the song, and a third that's a louder version of the second for when the guitar becomes more dominant at the end. Any help would be appreciated! No big rush on finishing up either of these.
