Practice loop: Watermelon Man

This is a practice loop I use a lot, sampled from the intro of Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man, from the album Headhunters. At 74 bpm it's a little faster than one of my other favorites, If I'm In Luck... by Betty Davis. There are some interesting cross rhythms happening, so you have to pay attention to how you place your notes. This is great for working on any of my cut time funk stuff.
