As promised, a lesson about how to lay down a good funk groove on this classic pop tune: Just The Two Of Us - a 1981 R&B single written by Bill Withers, William Salter and Ralph MacDonald, and recorded by Grover Washington Jr. and Bill Withers. The song originally appeared on Washington's album Winelight (1980) - This video follows my Aimee's Mini House Concert: Just The Two Of Us - a concert video from yesterday where I perform in this exact style.

I want to follow Miles Davis' example on this one. Learning to feel the groove can be a trick business. Getting technical and boring about it can only get you so far. Let's say some classic funk phrases and really try to get this feel inside of us!
Even over just one chord, there are endless ideas to be played! Pick up the backing track here and play it in loop mode.
