Something Old, Something New….

A lot of the music I like the best has one component in common – groove. It’s easy to hear in dance records from Industrial to Disco. But it’s also in places you wouldn’t expect – punk blues like The Gun Club or Americana like Reverend Peyton. The beat catches you and pulls you in to the song. It has a physical presence, it makes your body move.
Nile Rodgers is one of the great masters of groove. In this video he talks about finding the groove in all types of music. You may be surprised at some of the places you’ve heard his guitar playing without even realizing it.

His latest work is with Daft Punk. A lot of people like to trash ‘disco’. Where do you think a lot of the current dance music came from? You can really hear the guitar groove in ‘Get Lucky’.
