    Default Wilton Felder - I Want You Back

He recalled, “The bass part, which essentially mirrors and counters the melody, was mostly written out. I added just a bit of myself to it. As a sax player, I related to the line’s hip chromatic movement—but being self taught, I found the fingerings a bit intimidating.”

    Great read! Thanks for sharing! However one small mistake there, Muzz Skillings didn't play bass guitar in the 'Black or White' video, he played in the 'Give in to Me' video
