Boogie On Reggae Woman (CoutCam - Loop)

For this week's CoutCam video - an amazing bassline-loop taken from Stevie Wonder's "Boogie On Reggae Woman."

I didn't actually play that entire bassline - originally played on an amazing Moog bass-synth - but just extracted the main groove, so that I could turn it into a "solo-playable" piano part with the chord vamp on top.

Buddied up with my good friend Flip on drums, we created this CoutCam loop:

Left hand bassline indicated in top keyboard image, the 1, 2, 3 is the right hand vamp-move (with the root - bassline is being played from that root - indicated below)
