Andrew D. Gordon world renowned music educator, author of over 80 music educational products has created this book as part of a series of books that include, piano/keyboards, organ, tenor sax, alto sax, flute and guitar which have all been well received by students, teachers and musicians all over the world.
As playing funk styles is a passion of Andrew’s, he has written this instructional book “100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves for Bass” based on the influences of the great Funk, Soul and R&B artists such as: James Brown, Herbie Hancock, The Crusaders, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Ramsey Lewis, Booker T and The MG’s, MFSB, Billy Preston etc. Besides the aforementioned styles Andrew has also added a few grooves that are Afro-Caribbean such as: Latin, Reggae and Calypso.
Each of the 100 grooves have been recorded with the bass part playing along with a rhythm section of guitar, drums, keyboard and in many of the grooves, percussion. There is also a three minute Play-A-Long track for each of the 100 grooves minus the bass part so that you can practice along with the rhythm tracks adding up to over 5 hours of Play-A-Long tracks.
Musician extraordinaire Mike Garson comments about the book: "Andrew has a great flair for a large variety of grooves. These exercises if practiced can really help ones musicianship and feel and I wish I had them when I grew up. To be able to read them and hear them played is extremely valuable". Practice practice practice!
