Description
A loop-based funk piece featuring Tonewheel organ leads. Came together fairly quickly and I decided to post it before I effect it into oblivion!

Hey
You've put the sounds together better than other attempts
at "old-school funk." Geez, I'd even go so far as to
categorize this one as soul. How do you get THAT from
loops?

Having said that, the real challenge is take a loop-based
piece and get some a) form (which you've done to some
degree here) and b) chord changes. Take the bass line
and modulate it up to a fourth for a couple bars
(transpose up 7 semi-tones), then back down. You'll find
that you don't even need to transpose the organ. It'll fit
(mostly). Give it a shot. Keep on composing brutha.

Hey
Thanks! You must have seen my post to have provided such useful feedback!
I actually found that I had to transpose most of the loops down 3 semitones
to make them fit though I think the native key for this piece is E. I will play
around with the transposition ideas you gave. I wish I got more comments
like yours!
