The Old Jonny Booker Band monkeying around with Phil Rice's version of The Power of Music (1858).

Nice! These tunes really come alive with percussion. When I'm disciplined enough to record with a metronome, it's fun to throw a track into GarageBand and play with drum loops.
Good. I think this is an underrated tune, especially to have group participation and improvising, because it basically is a strong and simple chord progression. It has room for melodic embellishment. Certainly one to pull out for AEBG...with percussion.
Rhythm...yes. So adaptable. Isn't this the groove to "Walk This Way"?
So, a jazz man would see this as:
II: V I / V I / V I / V I :II
II: IV I / V I / IV I / V I :II
Tim, It's a beat from James' old high school marching band! With this one we started with the beat, then placed the tune within it. We're doing a lot of experimenting with this sort of beat/rhythm thing.
Good job boys. I'm proud of you.
Wow, I really like what you guys did with this. Nice pace, too.
Mark I listened to this many times, it doesn't get old. Greaat job once again. Do you have a CD with all these great tunes?
