I can't post a chord diagram in a comment, but for the E maj 7 as played in the song, reading from the high E string down, the frets are 7, 9, 8, 9, 7 (you don't play the low E string).

Tim's answer is correct, and the sheet music you linked to is wrong. That chord should be E maj 7, not E7+.

comment How is modern popular sheet music created?
Look, @user491018 (if that even is your real name), you're entitled to think your racist joke is funny, but that doesn't make it less racist. The accuracy of your so-called "facts" notwithstanding, racism is generally unwelcome here. Your joke has been deleted from your otherwise fine post. In the future, please keep your racist jokes to yourself and refrain from posting them here.

comment Learning to play bass guitar: Fretless vs Fretted
@dwoz I typed "fretless bass" into Google, then clicked "Images". Here's what came up: bit.ly/1UCtQG7 About half of the basses shown lack fret markers, including manufactured instruments from Fender, Warwick, Ernie Ball, etc. Perhaps it's more common than you think?

comment Learning to play bass guitar: Fretless vs Fretted
@dwoz But more to the point, the question was in regards to the relative difficulty of learning fretless bass guitar versus fretted, not fretless bass guitar versus upright bass. The fretted bass guitar is obviously easier to learn than its fretless cousin, and may therefore be a less frustrating gateway instrument into the wonderful world of bass playing.

comment Learning to play bass guitar: Fretless vs Fretted
@dwoz As I mentioned in my comment above, I disagree. An upright bass offers a vital positional landmark in the neck/body joint, which the fretless bass guitar lacks. This makes finding one's way around an upright considerably easier (in my opinion) than on a fretless bass guitar.

comment Can a motif be found outside of a phrase?
Can a sentence exist outside of words? What exactly do you mean by the terms "motif" and "phrase"?
