Abraham Martin John
This Marvin Gaye cover version of the Dion original
was released in 1969 reaching number 9 in the UK charts.
Original bassist, the legend, James Jamerson. Tab by bass50611
I have tried to tab as near as I could to the original but
with his high syncopation, Ive simplified it, so not exact.
If you play along and ignore some fill in notes,it does fit.
Still a hard piece to play but a beautiful bass line all the
same. Jamerson at his best.
