The Amen Break

This is a rather long (about 18 minutes) video explaining the Amen break. The Amen Break is an influential and oft-heard drum loop. It is 5.20 seconds long and consists of 4 bars of the drum-solo sampled from the song "Amen, Brother" as performed by the 1960s funk and soul group, The Winstons.
