    Hi guys,

    It's a great 16th note funk groove from Incognito's track 'talkin loud' from the 1994 album 'positivity'. On bass, one of the UK's heaviest groovers, randy hope taylor.

    part 2 coming next week

    ps - anyone know if it's possible to merge all my threads into one place?

    cheers,

  2. That's a problem, where people try to play things beyond their ability, and as a result, the tempo shifts drastically. That guy has horrible meter. The 2nd part of the song is WAY slower than the beginning... then gets faster and faster until the music comes back in...

    Is that a joke, steve? It's clear he's intentionally slowing it down to show how things are played, isn't it? There's even a metronome ticking along.

    It's a lesson, not a showcase. It's intended to be practiced with, so it's shown at slower tempos to show how it's meant to be played.
     
  5. Yup.. Nice catch... :D My sarcasm is sometimes seemingly undetectable.... :ninja:

    Dammit. I knew I had to get myself a new thinly-veiled-sarcasm-detector.
     
  7. Some of the new anti-virus/spyware software blocks thinly veiled sarcasm.... :D

  8. Yeah that was pretty undetectable, I'd say...
