That's pretty darned good, but it ain't quite Dunn! :D

Hellllll no. Ain't nobody as slick as Dunn, man. :) I wish I had a good recording of that band playing that song with our original drummer. He and I locked up so much better on that stuff. Silly drummers.

I know this is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but 35 years ago, when I started playing, Mr. Dunn and Mr. Jamerson were my heros for groove playing. Still are, together with Mr. Barrett.

 

I also liked what Darryl Jones said about being a groove player last February in Bass Player:

Jeremy, your mp3 plays, but no sound is coming out. I just finished listening to Mrs Grundy mp3s (which ROCK!), so it oughtta work. I really wanna hear you do the Duck thing!

It worked for me, and Jeremy and his crew are definitely workin' it out! :thu:

 

I'd hire them!

Fanboy? Why, yes! Nordstrand Pickups and Guitars.

Messiaen knew how to parlay the funk.

Hey, Jeremy!

 

That's pretty darned Duckalicious! Great tone! Great band, too!

I'm curious, what's your right hand plucking pattern on that riff? Do you alternate ( 1 2-1 2-1 1 2 1 2 ), or do you use the index for downbeats and the middle for upbeats ( 1 1-2 2-1 1 2 1 2 ) ? I've always found that line to be a little tricky.

The Black Knight always triumphs!

Oh wow, I play that line in an interesting fashion. This was another song that the "Shake a Tailfeather" group played. I knew I did something odd when I played that line. I just played it slowly and this is what I'm doing:

 

2 2-1 2-1 2 2 1 2

 

Wacky.
