I am so sad to hear of bob's death, I almost feel like I know him because I have been trying to play sign, sealed, delivered on my bass, but it has been so hard that I only have the intro down so far, but I won't give up never until I get it right. His name has been mentioned so much in my house this week that I feel like I am connecting with him through just trying to play this song. My dad has been a professional bass player for 50 years now and has been teaching me, but I wish someone would give me the song in a better format because I just have to play this song. Dad has spoiled me by given me music like I want you back and the love you save which thankfully I can play but I want this so bad and am having some trouble with the tabs. Hopefully will understand it soon because I will not play another song till I get it. It breaks my heart to hear of his death and makes me sad and I don't even know him. I was shocked when me and my dad had a lesson tonight and we both accidently learned of his death tonight after talking about him so much this week and for that; I WILL learn this song. My condolences to bob's friends and family, I am so sorry to read this tonight, and at the same time shocked too because like I said been talking about mr bob babbitt all week. Again so sorry to his wife and family.

Not only a great bass player but a wonderful warm human being, having watched the unmissable "Standing in the Shadows of Motown documentary. Much love and respect to those of the Funk Brothers who remain and those that have passed on. Legends all
