Outta Sight Funk and R&B Riffs for Bass is designed to help bass players and also keyboard players improve their bass playing technique with a wide range of different Funk riffs and grooves. The book starts off with easier examples and gradually increases in difficulty as the examples become more syncopated. This book is a companion to Outta Sight Funk & R&B Patterns for Drums (ADG06) While living in London during his early 20" s Andrew had the opportunity of developing his Funk & R&B skills by playing or jamming with musicians of mainly African & Jamaican descent 3 to 4 times a week. They would jam for hours on end including doing gigs to the early hours of the morning. From this experience it is his feeling that it is important to play and learn from other musicians, however, if one is unable to do so then incorporating this product into your practicing routine is the next best thing. By using this book your funk bass playing will definitely improve. Each of the 55 examples has been recorded three times: 1. The bass line played through twice with drums & percussion, guitars and keyboards at the regular tempo. 2. The bass line is recorded on the right channel and a click track on the left channel at a slowed down tempo. 3. Rhythm track without bass to practice with. ©2007, Book & CD.
