Ok folks,here's the situation. I hooked up with a great corporate/dance band about a month ago. The set list consists of a lot of Motown, specifically Stevie Wonder. I got a copy of Superstitious and learned it in no time.I pretty much already new it,it ain't tricky. I play it just like the recording,and now after a month of playing,the drummer tells me I'm not playing it right,or,I should say,his version.Apparently he wants me to play it like Mr.Jamerson or Rocco would. He says the original too straight(tell Stevie that),and I need to play it with more backbeat."That's waht all the corporate bands do with that song".As far as I could tell,there is no bass backbeat in this song. So he sends me mp3's of Funk Brothers,(great stuff) and he want's me to play all the Motown/funk tune like that. I don't see how playing in that style will fit a tune like Superstitious. To be realistic,I don't know what a backbeat is. The real kicker is,when I told him "just tell me what you want me to play",his respone was,"I'm not a bass player,and I can't explain it to you,you have to find that out for yourself". That's a lot of help! So can anybody out there tell me what he's talking about? This one thing will keep me in or out of this project,and I don't want to loose it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
