3025737, Best 12-bar loops
Posted by Mello, Mon Jul-13-20 11:06 PM
Obviously Tip is the master of this (Lyrics to Go, Electric Relaxation, Gettin’ Up), I’m looking for other songs that use the 12-bar to perfection. Does not have to be hip hop only. Something about the dynamic created from this has always just felt right to me.
3025739, No snark - do you mean 3-bar?

Nas’ U Gotta Love It has an odd bar and a half bass line probably making it a 3 bar loop.
3025761, Good one.

My definition is jacked up obviously. I count to four three times instead of four, so I thought instead of 16 it’s 12. But right, instead of four it’s three.
