So, the preliminary lesson was that the Mopho is built for Fusion. You must also prefer to say, it was built for Funk. Or Funk-Fusion. In any case, it's innocent looks hide a deceptively super musical instrument waiting to blow your mind away.

This lesson we will use the Fusion Bass Patch that is Program 108 on Bank 1. Now this bass is already tuned to some peculiar intervals, and we're going to take this and transpose both oscillators to E1. Now, play this over Am7 in a scale shape around C Minor in the key of F.

Now you see how this machine is a musical genius.

Now that you got the groove going you want to Jam. For this Youtube is your friend. A search for Fusion backing tracks in Am7 will turn up many tracks people have made. While most were made for guitarist to solo over you certainly can jam with your keyboards as well.

So here is one by a man named Michael Dolce that let's you try out your new funk-fusion skills. Turn your Mopho to Program 116 on Bank 1 and become Mr. Fusion. Remember, to tune the oscillators to E1 so you can play on the natural key of F to this.
