Practice loop: Fela Kuti - This Is Sad

This is a really cool practice loop, sampled from This Is Sad by Fela Kuti, with Tony Allen on drums. You could try to cop the actual groove, or just play anything over it and let the vibe infect your playing. My recent page of tresillo/cinquillo variations works well with this. Do the funk drill with those pages, and play with the kinds of interpretations found in the funk control series. Everything you can possibly play sounds great with this. Stick Control. Anything.

The complete original track is after the break:
