Born In Chicago in A
This is a great groove indeed and comes from a song off The Paul Butterfield Blues Band album from the sixties called; you guessed it, "Born in Chicago". This groove does something we talked about in Teen Beat, it "gives the backbeat an up beat feel". Only this time is does it with the bass guitar and the bass drum really driving the up-beat. Remember the up-beat is when your foot comes up and is also called the and beat. Like the Teen Beat this accent comes right after beat two referred to as the and of two. The and of two is a great place to make music sound funky, especially when it's accented with the bass guitar and bass drum like it is here.
