The "Ultimate Contemporary Rhythm Keyboard Grooves" by Andrew D. Gordon is a must-have book for any keyboardist who wants to elevate their playing skills to the next level. This comprehensive guidebook is packed with 150 contemporary rhythm patterns, covering a wide range of genres including jazz, blues, rock, funk, and Latin music.
The book is designed to help keyboard players learn how to develop and create their own grooves, by providing them with a solid foundation in rhythm theory and an understanding of how to apply it to their playing. The patterns are presented in standard notation and keyboard diagrams, making it easy for players of all levels to follow along.
What sets this book apart is the author's approach to teaching rhythm. Andrew D. Gordon breaks down each groove into its component parts, allowing readers to see how the rhythm is constructed and giving them the tools they need to modify and create their own variations.
Also, there are extended 2-3 minute play-a-long mp3 files of all 21 grooves that can be accessed from a computer enabling you to practice each groove and pattern for an extended period of time. The play-a-long mp3 files gives you the ability to either practice the rhythm patterns notated in the book in whatever order you prefer as well as the possibility of creating your own rhythm patterns.
With this approach, players will not only be able to play the patterns in the book but also to use them as a springboard for their own creativity. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced player, the "Ultimate Contemporary Rhythm Keyboard Grooves" is a valuable resource that will help you improve your playing skills and develop your own unique style. So why wait?
I have been working on the different examples and really enjoying your excellent approach to things- they're great for developing 2 hand coordination and independence/technique for both hands/getting inside the different styles in terms of voicings-range used/rhythmic factors etc......thanks again for producing these uniquely valuable studies-I have a lot of stuff I'm practicing but feel for the aspects of my overall keyboard skill set mentioned above your exercises are the most effective.
