    Speaking of 'Get On The Floor'. I am pretty sure that the only note that is "popped" in the intro groove (later chorus) is Bb on the 3rd fret of G string. This is the way it was recorded on "Off The Wall" album. This is the way I recorded it too. I've noticed that bass players tend to "pop" a few notes in this groove. Anyway, everyone has their own way. I wanted to learn it as close as Louis Johnson. Of course I cannot hit those strings like he did, LOL :D
