Bassline Academy – Thinking About Your Body, Bobby McFerrin

Here’s another Bobby McFerrin transcription taken from the Spontaneous Inventions album. It’s funny how you find music sometimes, I first heard this track (sort of) on a Cadbury’s chocolate advert! I’ve always loved it (and Cadbury’s chocolate – maybe marketing does work after all) so it’s been great to learn it and get inside the groove. With all of Bobby McFerrin’s solo stuff, there’s an amazing sense of feel and pulse which makes it sound like there’s more than just one person playing/singing it. As with Opportunity it works really well down the octave on the tuba, although the acrobatic leaps are a bit a of a challenge.
