Measure The Music: “Up For the Down Stroke” by Parliament Funkadelic

By Jake Padilla

The syncopated rhythm figure leading into the 21st measure.

Your own steady rhythm is the most comfortable.
This is the steady pace and the exact stride you need to jump the ravine. You see the ravine. You check your footing. It’s perfect.
Not only are you prepared, but you’ve leapt this gap many times before.
You take the jump.
And like every time before, it’s terrifying!!
The only thing that can break your groove… MORE GROOVE!
Have a funky JUNE!!
