Seriously?! I'm genuinely curious. Take a half step up (or down), from anywhere, and it's probably the wrong note. That would not be the 'pocket' that would be a clam.Ok, sure, whatever you say. Been playing in bands for 35 years, almost all genres, studied under some serious jazz dudes in college, never once heard the word "pocket" applied to note choice. Probably just a matter of semantics.
What does everyone else think about this?!
