The main bass groove in this one is so funky it singes my nose hairs.

The first song I learned how to play on the guitar.... mainly because it was easy to learn and because it was fun as hell to play.

The Troggs are an English rock band from the 1960s that had a number of hits in Britain and the USA.

...and then there was Tone Loc.  I don't know why I have to lagh every time I hear this.  I love the lovely ladies.

So funky...groovin' bass line.  If your a bass player into the funk....like me....this is the line you have to learn.  8)

By none other than the master himself...Bootsy C.

That's what I've been wondering.  A lot of people assume all P-Funk lines are Bootsy, but Cordell Mosson and a number of others are also credited Parliament bassists, and this album in particular has a total of 4 credited bassists.  That said, to a devoted student of the Bootsy school (figuratively and quite literally, in that I on a whim paid the tuition to be a part of Bootsy's startup Funk University last month) the mobility and rhythmic kicks of that line just scream Bootzilla to me.

I've been listening to Blood Red Throne-Souls of Damnation while I mill my grains.  It's pretty metal!

That is very cool!   8)

When are you going?

You'll have to fill me in on that for sure.

You'll have to fill me in on that for sure.

Been and returned...it is an online "school", with videos and lessons from various bassists, including the Dean himself of Funk Studies.  I signed up on a whim, but they charge 30 bucks a month, and while interesting, it isn't really worth that for me, so I just went the first month.  It was closer to being dues for a Bootsy Collins fanclub for me than an actual school! 

There are a lot of bassists out there I admire, but in terms of guys I'd genuinely just like to hang out with, Mr. Collins seems one of those genuinely authentic nice guys out there.  A friend of mine has an uncle in Cincinnati with a record shop, who met Bootsy in his shop, and just the fact that he dresses the way he does normally...not as a getup, or stage costume...well, he's a space alien, but a friendly, regular, day-to-day space alien, not a poseur.

I'd love to meet him.  He seems like a nice guy.  He definitely has some unique costumes.

Did you find the school to be worth your time.  I find the internet clips and videos to be somewhat educational as far as picking up on tricks, licks and the like.

I wish I had good links for this, but...Alfred Apaka.  This album is great:
http://www.amazon.com/Hawaiian-Favorites-Alfred-Apaka/dp/B000002PCC/ref=ntt_mus_ep_dpi_1

Definitely beer drinking music more than brewing.  Requires a comfortable chair (or hammock!), a cool breeze, and good beer.

Throw in this album too! 
http://www.amazon.com/Hukilau-Hulas-Various/dp/B000001OTJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1283280206&sr=1-1

I know these old songs are cheesy 1950s touristy Hawaiian, but I have to say that having listened to a lot more traditional Hawaiian music, I love the loungey, almost jazzy pop-Hawaiian from that era most of all.  A few deft glides of the steel guitar, a sip of beer, and a cooling breeze in through the window from the attic fan, and the day's stress melts away, for me.

This is just a haunting, amazing song by probably one of my favorite singer/songwriters. Listening to his three albums, brewing a IIPA....Nothing better.
