Nate Smith is the funkiest mofo going. Here’s a quick transcription of the first released track from his album, “Kinfolk : Postcards From Everywhere”.
Every second bar has an extra quaver to the count, making the rhythm 4/4, 9/8 repeated throughout the song. This can also be felt as 17/8 time, with the back beat placed in the bar to feel the 4. Funky as f#@*k!
It’s not what you play, it’s how you play it.
