Bootsy Collins Explains Playing On "The One"

  • 2 Comments

In funk music, there's often a lot of talk about playing on "the one", but what does it really mean??

In this video, legendary bassist, Bootsy Collins, explains how James Brown taught him how to play (or not play) on "the one" and take funk to the next level.

Bootsy gets into more detail about the "Funk Formula" in the video below:

This is a great reminder of how the "less is more" approach can have a huge impact on the feel of music. Get out of the way, stay funky and always remember "the one". Thank you, Bootsy.
