Funk tunes are very rhythmic and this is no exception. In order to pull this off, you will have to read and play the rhythms as they are written. I left a section open for solos if anyone wanted to play some. The tune was requested and the requester asked that the original feel of the piece be kept. In order to do that, I had to have the second, third and forth trumpets play a guitar figure throughout. These are not the most interesting parts to play but I think we kept the original feel for the number.

I have included two options for endings. The recording is an example of the shorter of the two ending.
