Ben Ratner must not be a percussionist — or must have never played a clave. Because that’s the standard clave rhythm: “3:2 son clave.”
DId “The Heights” copy all of the songs listed here?
Nope — because nobody owns that rhythm. It’s been around for ages. And is not copyrightable. In copyright terms, it’s “scenes a faire.”
I’m not a percussionist. I’m a troll 🙂
Tell that to Robin Thicke re Marvin Gaye/Blurred Lines…
Come on guys, this is FUNNY.
