This last week saw the passing of jazz legend Chick Corea. Chick’s impact on jazz and music as a whole goes without saying and as a tribute to the great man I’m going to give you a breakdown of one of the lines that every jazz bass player should know. It’s THAT tricky part from the song Spain by Return To Forever, originally played by another jazz legend: Stanley Clarke!

Spain – Return To Forever

This line is counted in 2/2 (cut common time) so the foot counts half notes rather than quarter notes. However, I’ve specified the tempo of each track in quarter notes
