    Now that is 8) I really like the one, explanation by Bootsy.
    I never really thought of it that way. By playing the one and filling to the next.

    YESSSS! I like these little manuals on how to play music.

    If anything, I think I've frequently been guilty of over-empasizing the '1'. Could produce quite a heavy elephant-like funk Laughing
