Chaka Khan – ‘We Can Work It Out’ bass playalong

I’ve always been a massive fan of Chaka’s cover of ‘We Can Work It Out’ from What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me. Greg Phillinganes absolutely laying it down on synth bass! Thanks to Cesar Baron for requesting this on Patreon.

I’ve had a go at recreating the synth sound with a handful of pedals. In the video I do a full rundown of which pedals I use, and the settings.

I’ve also done a full transcription of the bassline, note-for-note! Head over to the transcriptions page to get the tab or notation.

Let me know how you get on in the comments! And if you’d like to make requests for anything like this – playalongs, tutorials, transcriptions – please consider signing up to support me on Patreon!
