Check out Carol Kaye at She recorded large number of Motown hits as well as beint the one who defined studio bass playing in the 60's and 70's. You want old school - she is it. She is still one of the scariest players on the West Coast (or East Coast, too !) on the guitar and bass... and she is over 65! (can't remember how old she is). The pros in the business know who she is, and many of them have been influenced by her playing or have studied with her. Check her out.

: Hi, nice to be back here!

: I think everybody can agree, that there's always things that need improving. I have always thought of myself as a funky player, but still I've known I have a lot to learn still. So, to get to my point, what would you recommend for me to study to improve on my Motown style of playing. (Books, songs, players... (other than James Jamerson..;) )
