L!!! Bagpipers do it by just blowing hard.
"That drummer can't keep time." even if it *was* the
keyboardist that initiated the tempo shift. <G>

A few Holloweens ago,|I have heard many people pronounce it that way
I was doling out the treats to a few late stragglers
when a car drove by thumpin' and bumpin' so loud I
could hear something in the trunk rattling. I asked the
girls what it must sound like *inside* that vehicle if
it sounds so bad from here.
[...] not reconciling what you see with what's

I think that's a big part of it with the young folks,

ONe thing that helped me was the older kids at the
school for the blind, where ad hoc combos of musicians
were as ubiquitous as sandlot baseball among
neighborhood sighted kids.
Also, I had an uncle who was heavily into older forms
of jazz. HE could sit down with me as I was listening
to rock 'n roll, then put something else on the stereo
and show me how one lead to the other.
[...] this was late '60's early '70's, and exploration
was the driving force, at least in my world.
