    I am really digging this tune so far. It reminds me of vintage Rufus a little bit. I agree with Wikkid regarding the repetitiveness. My only other suggestion (it's just me, and in the grand scheme of things what does it matter...LOL) would be to rethink the sax. Nicely done so far!!

    LovePeace&Light,

    Hi Neuromancer56,

    I just saw this, so many thanks for the shout out.
    I think this one is better, and I enjoyed it. However you still have a tendency to pile on instruments. Some of them work here (like the bass, but then again, I'm biased because I play bass, especially slap bass - back in my day it was called thumping, created by the great bassist Larry Graham).

    Watch out for too much repetition - like with the use of the guitar. Funk from back in the day did switch up instruments, but not at the expense of loosing the rhythm/groove. We used the term "stay in the pocket" that's why as the bassist, I had to be in sync with the drummer. We controlled the tempo, and the other musicians followed our lead (for the genres of funk and jazz funk and disco).

    Like I said, this is better and I really like it. I see what you're aiming for, and I hope the following two videos will help. You are doing jazz funk, and in order to do it well, you will need to listen to some of the masters at this.

    One is Herbie Hancock, and the other is the Crusaders.
    Check out how Herbie adds several different instruments in his iconic hit
    "Watermelon Man". This tune starts out simple, but its deceptive:

    Next, please check out a live performance by the Crusaders. Notice how they change keys and the variety of tempos they utilize:

    I'd like to add, that to do what you really want to do with your music, you will have to continue to learn an instrument. There's no other way around it. Loops are great, I love using them. But based on your musical ambitions, you may find them limiting. I wish you all the best.

    Long as you stay true to yourself (you do you), I think you will reach your musical goal.

    Thanks for your wisdom and sharing these 2 pieces of absolutely amazing music with me. My mind is completely blown, and if I live a 1000 years, I don't think I could come up with anything that comes near to this. Right now, I've just got too much on my plate. Work, and especially family pose some huge challenges on me, and so music offers a quick sweet escape. So I'll probably continue to drive you and the others here batty with my mashed together loops and tinkering, never living up to any potential. Maybe a few years down the road when life starts slowing down, I'll delve deeper.

    I think this funky track is the way to go with your vocals. What I really like about your vocals on slack was that you didn't just copy the melody of one of the instruments like I did. You completely wove a new thread which sounds so much better. I listened to your vocals and I was mystified on how you were able to do this. You also surprised me in how you were able to get all funky with your vocals. I wasn't sure you had it in you, but I was very pleasanly surprised. In fact I think your funky vocals are much more compelling than your original vocals. My funky vocals sounded so contrived and cheesy, but yours sound so genuine and smooth. The only things I saw to tweak were a couple of spots where your vocals got quieter (not at the end because it makes sense to get quieter there) But I'm wondering if running them through "guitar rig" (like I did with mine) will boost them up a bit. Also I'd like to explore you singing everything twice and see if we layer them together if they pack even more punch. I've seen lots of vocalists do this and it sounds great. It may or may not work here, but it's worth a shot.
