    I've been working on my funk rhythm chops. Fun stuff---gotta keep a loose wrist.

    Recently stumbled across this guy, Cory Wong. Killer rhythm chops. A "smooth" tune and then a killer right-hand demo

    Hi, M,
    You always provide great food for thought and conversation. So, Funk is a feel. Period. R@B is a feel. Period. Jazz is a feel. Period. I think you see I like to use periods. . . however, only so much can be taught. The rest is in what people used to call "Soul" as executed by your chops. I'm a firm believer in Soul in all forms of music. Rubenstein had it in Classical. Dexter in Jazz. Brother James in Funk/Soul. Al Green in R&B. Stevie Ray Vaughan in R&R. Willie Nelson in C@W. I really don't know that it can be taught. You have it or you don't! Play live . . . Marinero

    I agree that feel is crucial. Herb Ellis talked about that too (and rhythm) as being the most important thing, really. But as you say, it's hard to teach. Though it can be developed----not everyone who ends up playing well professionally started out with good time.

    And from the other perspective, I have read that piano players who often perform solo tend to become a little too loose with their timing. (May happen to guitarists too.)

    A big part of funk is the feel. As James Brown said, “Gimme THE ONE”.

    Hi, Z,
    Good video. JB was a natural musician ,although, he really didn't play an instrument seriously(piano/organ) and I'm certain he couldn't read music. However, his rhythm, timing, phrasing, and ear were second to none. His horn section, the JB's, were the tightest sound in Funk/Soul/R@B under his relentless whip as many former players can attest and he never tolerated bad musicianship for a moment although he was notoriously a cheap employer. We did a JB medley for years in the Jazz/Rock big bands I led. I always hired Classical guys on trumpet and bone because they could read well but, strangely, they often struggled with the syncopation ,especially, if the bass and drummer were playing off beat for effect. Two classic examples of this were: The Big Payback(playing on the beat) and Got the Feeling(heavily syncopated horns). RIP brother James! You were the best!
