here's my cover version of the motown classic - what's going on by marvin gaye tribute to bob babbitt.

the original version was played by james jamerson, and this is probably one of his best reconized song.  there were stories about james jamerson got into the studio late and drunk and ended up he did the cut by laying down on the floor.  there was also story about that the bassline of this song was written by a motown arranger but in jamerson style.  this is a real good song.  just wish i could do it better.

the tune was done with a squier classic vibe 60' p bass with labella flatwound string plugging to apogee one and recorded in logic with mark studio plug-in.  backing track came with the book 'standing in the shadow of motown'.
