    Default For James Brown Fans-Transcription Question

    All the drum transcriptions I see for Mother Popcorn show quarter note on HH.
    However when I see Clyde performing in this video it surely looks like he is playing 8ths or variations thereof and not quarters.
    Are the transcriptions incorrect?

    Man, just listen to the damn song and play it the way that feels right. Stop asking questions about the location of a ghost note. These threads are weird.

    This. The allure of funk is to flow. Feel. Use the instrument to make people go UHH!!! in the funkiest way imaginable. Groove, dude. The more time you spend sweatin' about transcriptions, the less time you can get down and funky! Grab some sticks and do it to it, sucka
