What is it actually doing?

Anyone know - for real?

I've slowed it down and have a general idea (I found the stems for it and parts of the backing have the isolated EP) but it's pretty buried.

I been playing the horn fills with my left hand (apologies to the horn purists, but hey it's a cover band) and comping between the two chords with my right (EP sound). Can't recall the chords I think Am7, Gm7? Haven't sat down with the slow-downer yet to pick out specific notes and timing. The horns are the prominent audible part for me.

yeah it's one of the few tunes I feel I can't escape horns...I sing some backup on the chorus too so my 2-hand abilities (not great to begin with) are even more limited.

Other than the chorus I just play epiano but it's probably nothing like the actual record. Nobody has complained yet! grin

I never played this tune in a band, but if I did I think I'd have a hard time not throwing in some clav ala Billy Preston's 'Outa Space', even if it is against the rules.


Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

I do the exact opposite.
Layered EPs Bass Clef Zones, and BBB & CHeinHorn layers Treble Clef.
Stomp down an expression for a reverse Delay on A min 6/9 to save me from boredom too.
Ive played that song more than the Commodores I think.

FWIW I play a C Maj. 2nd Inversion, to a D Maj 2nd Inversion as the comp.
