100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves for Organ MIDI files
Andrew D. Gordon, world renowned music educator, author of over 60 music educational products, has previously written numerous books on funk keyboard styles such as: “60 Of The Funkiest Keyboard Riffs Known To Mankind”, “Funky Organ Grooves”, “Outta Sight Funk & R&B Riffs For Piano/Keyboards” which have 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 Organ” based on the influences of the great Funk, Soul and R&B artists such as: James Brown, Herbie Hancock, The Crusaders, Average White Band, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Ramsey Lewis, Booker T and The MG’s, MFSB, Billy Preston etc. Besides the afore-mentioned 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 organ part playing along with a rhythm section of guitar, bass, drums 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 keyboard part so that you can practice along with the rhythm tracks adding up to over 5 hours of Play-A-Long tracks. A Spotify playlist containing the songs that have influenced the grooves can be listened to. https://open.spotify.com/user/adgpro/playlist/7qb2ijcpIvl1D9AULTU5Ei Keyboardist 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".
