Could you tell me some Voodoo dance-type music that you were talking about in the clinic, to get me started with this kinda stuff?? There was this one particular section in one of the tracks you were playing along to which was somewhere in between a 2 and a 3 feel (2 and 3 is the same, right? :p) which I found very interesting, rhythmically. So I was just wondering what I should listen to to get started because there is a lot of stuff out there.

Hey bratha Karti'

Thank you for the kind words and I am very happy you enjoyed it.

There are many things you can listen to, to get your feet wet with this genre.
But the first i always "Muñequitos de Matanza"
Google them and get everything you can find that they have done. Its really a beautiful way to start and so much fun!!

If you can remind me of which track you mean. The one with the super stretchy feel?
If it was a play along track it could have been "Doin the Duhs" From my book..."Working the Inner Clock"

If not write me back and let me know.
All the best and stay in touch
Live to play!
