Patrice Rushen – ‘Forget Me Nots’

'Forget Me Nots' is a great song, with a fantastic bassline, supplied by session bassist Freddie Washington. This song is famous amongst bassists for its slap groove, which is relatively simple to play, although with one or two tricky moments! As well as being a hit for Patrice Rushen back in 1982, this song was sampled by Will Smith in 1997 for his hit song 'Men in Black', the theme song from the movie of the same name.
