Didn’t Cha Know [Pino Palladino//Bass Breakdown Ep.2]

In this week's lesson, I break down Pino Palladino's bass line on Erykah Badu's Didn't Cha Know. The bass line is actually from Tarika Blue's Dreamflower and was played by Barry Coleman.

Scroll down to hear both versions as well as to download the free PDF with TAB/notation plus a drum beat to practice along to.
