Our drummer wants to learn this. And I feel like this is a bass players essential tune and something I should know. Anyone have charts or tab for this tune?

Thanks fellas.

You know, it kills me about drummers. I'll have to work my lines out perfectly and he'll probably fake the whole drum part...........

Glad to help!

AFAIK, this was transcribed by Simon Merrick.
His name and website are there at the bottom of the chart.

That's always one of my pet peeves.

Learn the kick pattern
(that's usually the part they fake the most)
and call him on it!!!

Ive played this, it seem daunting at first, but with the softly softly approach and playing the horn parts slowly and accurately before getting up to tempo makes it a joy to do, trust stevie wonder....a magician.!.
