    • _SHIMMY Shimmy Modern Funk Pop PLAY DEMO
      This modern funk pop style has a loud and proud loop that assists the slap bass and guitars in bringing the funk. Held acoustic piano offers a simple chording foundation. The funk bass alternates between octaves with a syncopated rhythm, often adding accents on the plucked high notes. Acoustic guitar strums a repeating syncopated rhythm while electric guitar sticks to muted single notes.
