Anthony Jackson - I Was Made To Love Him (Chaka Khan)

Anthony Jackson's bass line on this track is rooted in the legacy of Motown bassist James Jamerson, but is also highly innovative and groundbreaking. AJ was one of the first bassists to play extended fills starting on the "one" of the bar instead of playing fills that would end/resolve on beat one. He has had a major influence on the way bassists play contemporary gospel, funk, and R&B music today.

There are so many cool things in this track - be sure to watch all the way through!
