Working on "Sir Duke" Stevie Wonder for a student
Awesome practice
Thats a cracker alright :) Hadn't listened to it for years but started playing it again a few months back.
I will put up a chart at some point.
don't bother for me bud, I work it out myself - can't do charts. I go to tab if I can't hear (more than usual these days) and then apply the right fingering to make it easy for me.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

One suggestion, try the app yousician. It teaches you technique from beginners to experienced with feedback as well. I tried it for fun 6 months ago on guitar and started to enjoy it. While I already could play I flew through first levels to level 8. Lead. Rhythm 6, knowledge 6. They then changed the app so not sure what is the go now but it's well worth a look in on free trial.

'Moment's Notice' by John Coltrane is a mighty fine piece of music but a goddamn pain in the ass on bass
