    It's this "clicking" guitar mute instrumental line with some really mild filtering on it. I heard it in "Next Episode," "Still Dre," and WC's "The Streets."

    Anybody know what it is?

    I think all are samples, at least the Dre songs are.

    I think the original for Still Dre (Grant Green) is just a piano, sounds plucked though. The instrument in Next Episode (David Axelrod) sounds like some kind of ethnic plucked guitar...

    Yeah, and the man still makes great music today. He even did an album where he had collabos with Ras Kass etc...

    In regards to old soul, did you all hear that Nina Simone died the other day, aged 70.

    "The Next Episode" from the David McCallum CD, "Music Is A Part Of Me". The song sampled is called "Edge" and David McCallum is David Axelrod's real name.

    Axelrod is the MAN!

    When I heard Diamond's remix for Ras Kass' "Soul On Ice", i was obsessed with finding that sample. When I finally picked up Axelrod's "Mental Traveler" I flipped!!!

    Yeah, David McCallum Axelrod has been used quite a lot. I'm into obtaining the original sample too...got a lot of well known (and not so well known) original samples by now.

    Going even more off topic, Bob James has made a lot of stuff too. Maybe we should start a thread about it.

    nice bunch of misinformation 'killah' --
    david mccallum is/was an actor (UNCLE etc) and david axelrod
    produced and arranged his albums. also, "the edge" is from
    the album "music - a bit more of me" and not the "part of me".
    as far as the original question, i don't think that the sounds
    heard on dre's album are samples. sounds more like the stuff
    is re-played with triton or something.

    With the musicians, instruments and gear Dre has in stock, I am sure he could replay, and would replay it, to save paying the performance rights.

    Tash used "The Edge" too on his solo album, just noticed that the other day.

    i guess you aint talkin bout the whole shit ... like the intro part is definately sampled... the muted guitar part i guess could be replayed.. but the intro is sampled... so i wouldnt see why sample the intro and replay the little riff in the verse
