Love is Here and Now Youre Gone
Released by Diana Ross & The Supremes in 1967 number 1 in the States
and number 17 here in UK.
Bass performance James Jamerson
Tab by bass50611. Jamersons bass line is superb playing mainly
across the chords. For me one of his best and a rare one too as
he plays above the 5th fret!!!
Any comments its bass254@btinternet.com
Have fun ~ its a very fast and furious bass line and note the
semi tone de-tuning enables one to play to the original recording.

If it helps, have a listen to Basil Fearingtons recording of this bass line foundon the 
CDs within the autobiography about Jamersons life
Standing on The Shadows of Motown. Its just him playing and this is also
de-tuned as well..
Tab updated 6th December 2013 making it a little easier

This bass line really stands out among Motown songs. I don't play bass but came here just to see what the tab looked like. Thanks for the story. I didn't know this was played by Jamerson, should have known. Great tab, too.

"Jamersons bass line is superb playing mainlyacross the chords. For me one of his best and a rare one too ashe plays above the 5th fret!!!That's because it's clearly NOT Jamerson." "Jamersons bass line is superb playing mainly cross the chords."You mean like Carol Kaye, who regularly did that because of her chordal note training in jazz?Get your facts straight. Jamerson did not play on every Motown song, and played on NONE of the ones recorded in LA. This is a Carol Kaye bassline played by Carol Kaye. You Jamerson apologists need to stop trying to steal credit away from the real 60s bass genius of pop music. It's embarrassing.

My comment to LBassy statement above ~ never read so much rubbish in my life. James Jamerson was a Funk Brother that was an all male band. Carol Kaye was employed in LA from 1972 for some of Motowns recording after Hits Ville Detroit closed and the disbandment of The Funk Brothers in 1972 and moved to LA
