Funky Drummer-

Make It Funky-
36681, the drummer isn't playing that groove right
Posted by PungeePyPy, Mon Jun-18-07 11:38 PM
ruins the whole song

edit: referring to the "Funky Drummer" groove
36682, no it doesnt.

>ruins the whole song
36683, for me it does cuz I been studying that groove for a long time
Posted by PungeePyPy, Mon Jun-18-07 11:45 PM
I almost forgot... thank you!

36685, come on now

you dont do funky drummer and fuck up the drums. Come on!. was this recording straight of the board if anybody knows.

on second thought: did he actually play the groove wrong or was he putting his touch on it.

Thanks for the recording..was great
36686, dope!

I dig questo's and brass heaven's also

36687, exactly, notice the difference in how Quest plays that groove?
Posted by PungeePyPy, Tue Jun-19-07 12:05 AM
He plays it like Clyde.

Not all loud and shit like he's some damn rock drummer. Mos Def drummer needs to LISTEN more.

edit: again, referring to "Funky Drummer." The touch is light, the groove heavy.
36688, it's all about that pocket.
