Description : As kids, my brothers and I used to watch the WWF professional wrestling on Saturday mornings and one of the "characters" was a big dude who dressed as a US marine and had the moniker of Sgt. Slaughter. He used a submission hold called the Cobra Clutch. I recently watched the Ford vs Ferrari movie and was inspired by the great music in it. That's what this one is all about. Cool movie.

Description : Found some 70's funk drum loops that I liked and added some funk horn loops. Then I found some effects and percussion loops that worked well with the bass loops I found. Yeah, all loops but 1 vocal track of mine. :) Funk/fusion? Might be cool to have some hip hop styled vox on this, any takers?
Description : Not sure of the genre. I used vocal loops from a folder called African Vocals and 3 different kinds of horn loops and a shaker loop. Using EZ Drummer, I'm playing the bass and the 3 electric guitar tracks.
