I was going to put Fela Kuti but didn't really know which track.

A favorite of my youth and a pretty huge choon in itself.

Dean, I keep reading Bake off reports about your musical taste, and you take some stick. If this thread is it, you are very welcome up to a bake off in the frozen north, where your taste will be more appreciated!!.

Thanks Brian,

When you go to bakeoffs with beardy Folk types, long haired Rockers, swoony singer songwriter lovers anything with a bit of BALLS scares them. :D but watch them all moan when I don't bring any music :)

Maceo, now we are talking!!!

Hi,

I have tonnes of funk in my house.

Good funk is heavy on the rhythm. James Brown developed the emphisis "on the one". For this you need a good bass player.

More importantly you need a good drummer.

Get the groove going and lets funk!

First record with the word Funky in the title.

James Brown Good Foot & Soul Power

SCIDB, Dean a great insight there in that first clip. I always hear this music as the strong 2 and 4 thing.

in fact you can hear this in the click track that he plays with. so to hear him talk of the 1 is great.

Who listens to the bass player anyway??? (sorry leonard)

Check out the drum demo in video 2 especially the 2nd half. you will hear his 2 and 4 on the snare.

Then the 3rd video. strong 2 and 4 from drums but the bass is using the 1 technique mentioned.

love this thread

fascinating stuff.
