Default Funk Trio Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weVYrtOauls

This was the first time we ever jammed together as a trio. All 3 of us live in different areas for school and work, so we got together and had ourselves a jam over the Christmas break, and this was our result.

Please watch and critique! Thanks!

That was awesome !

I really liked your steady pocket. You seem very comfortable and relaxed and played a solid track. Guitar sound was very clean and everyone was feeling the groove well. Overall, It was excellent especially for improv. I would have liked to hear a bass solo in there, bass player was itching to put it in there. lol

Keep up the good work...

Feels good... real good.

Believe me, I really hate to say this, but I think you should have pulled back on the busy playing. Not much, but some.

A nice funk groove - enjoyable to listen to.

Given what the guitars were doing I liked your general support - the snare hits generally did a good job of helping everyone keep time. You seem to know how to support them.

When you went into the crazy stuff you can see the guitarists become a little lost at not having that solid beat. :-)

You've got some good speed but for the type of music I would have preferred to see a little more restraint in your "solo" - kind of like Morello in Take 5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwNrmYRiX_o

The only other comment - at 45 seconds I wish your ride would have been a little stronger on the recording. It definitely was the right idea to have it in there.

Thank you for sharing.
