Counting game anyone?

Literally we are just gonna count and see how high we get. There’s no count breakers, so it’s just for the thrill lol. Feel free to write normal comments, but make sure you include the number we’re on. And don’t make separate replies. Instead, just tag a user. If there is an error and you messed up or whatever, try and edit the comment before you delete it.
Have fun!

Using grace notes with swing?

I'm transcribing a piece for jazz trio, but I have run across a slight problem. The piece is in swing time, with a 67% eighth note ratio. If I add an acciaccatura (or any other grace note that comes before the beat, as far as I can tell) onto an off-beat note, the grace note is played far too early. It's almost as if it's playing a grace note for the straight eighth, rather than the swing eighth. The grace note works fine if it's on the on-beat. Can anyone give me some advice for how to fix this?

Country Music?

Do any of y'all like country music? If so, who are your favorite country musicians? Favorite song(s)?

Personally, I like George Strait, Johnny Cash, John Denver. For the most part, I prefer the music of the '80s, so I also like Keith Whitley, George Jones, Hank Jr., Alan Jackson, and so on.
