Weekly Basslines #135: Free Me (Joss Stone)

This bassline was requested by Markus from Switzerland and it's a real cool funky ostinato groove with some 16th syncopation.

The Main Riff is built around a I-IV-Progression in the key of A major and uses chord tones (root and third) and connecting approach notes.

When played live Joss Stone has the song transposed to G major, as you can hear in this following videoclip:
