  4. 1- Ebony Jam - I have a chart of this- you DO NOT want to see what it looks like on paper- not for the faint of heart
    2- I Got to Groove- any of the lines he plays on the various versions of this song
    3- Squib Cakes, except for when chester takes over
    4- Oakland stroke- this used to be my band's pre break song years ago.
    5- You've got to Funkifize
    6- Drop it in the Slot
     
  5. Credit

    btw azureblue, I would LOVE to see a chart of Ebony Jam!
    Care to share?

    These aren't in a particular order and I heavily appreciate all of Rocco's stuff (yes, ballads and disco included) so it's more of a quick listing than anything:

    1. Ebony Jam
    2. You Got to Funkifize
    3. Drop It in the Slot
    4. It's Not The Crime
    5. You Strike My Main Nerve

    This dude I know shows me a new TOP part he's learned for his funk group every time we cross paths.. he has no sense of dynamics/where to mute and it makes me a little bit sick.
     
  7. Órale!
    Here's mine;
    1) Just enough and Too much
    2) Happy 'bout that
    3) Nothing like it ( overseas "Oakland Zone")
    4) A little knowledge
    5) ....you know the "ones"! :smug:
     
  8. BLASPHEMY!!!! :rollno:
     

  9. Sorry for the delay- I will copy it and send it to you as a pdf.....
    it originally was a midi file, and it may not be spot on, but it is close enough
