Patrice Rushen – ‘Never Gonna Give You Up (Won’t Let You Be)’ bass playalong

I finally had a chance to stretch out on my new Ultra P4 Essence! 

I only heard this Patrice Rushen tune for the first time a few months ago, but I knew I had to transcribe it as soon as I did. 

The song was composed by her long-time bassist, “Ready” Freddie Washington. It’s classic Freddie!

As I mentioned in the previous post about this tune, I used moises to separate the tracks. It’s terrifyingly good at it! The version you’re hearing in the video is effectively without any trace of the original bass track.
