Today we’re going to take a look at a Stevie Wonder classic: I Wish from the Songs In The Key Of Life album.

There are two main riffs to deal with in this song and we’ll look at them both. We’re going to look at the notes in there, I’ll give some tips on technique and then we’re going to breakdown and analyse what’s going on from a harmony perspective.

Analysing bass lines in this way can be a great way of understanding music theory and how it works in practice but it’s also a great help when it comes to learning and memorising a song.
