This song is so funky. I love the backing vocals! Haha, I think I
always do. This song sometimes has that "swing" beat to it where 8th
notes aren't straight (like * + * + * + *). It's more like~E
*..+*..+*..+*. Not all notes are like this, but some are. I didn't
wanna split everything up more than it is cause it'd take up twice as
much space, but just listen and you can hear what I mean. This is just
a rough idea to get you started if you're having trouble.
