(Playlist) BOOGIE - In 40 Minutes

Betcha there's a bunch of people reading this thinking, "Just what the hell is boogie anyway?".


Wikipedia states, "Boogie is a repetitive, swung note or shuffle rhythm, "groove" or pattern used in blues which was originally played on the piano in boogie-woogie music. The characteristic rhythm and feel of the boogie was then adapted to guitar, double bass, and other instruments."


I would define it as that type of music that gets you stomping your feet in unison with the beat (headbanging &/or air guitaring also allowed!). Fast, slow or in-the-pocket, when the groove hits, you have no choice but to get-a-stompin'.


Or maybe we should just let you hear it first hand. Git down ...
