Andrew D. Gordon, world renowned music educator, author of over 80 music educational products, has written a series of books called "100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Groves" for various instruments including Piano/Keyboards, Organ, Tenor and Alto Sax, Flute, Trumpet, Trombone, Guitar. This version is for Bass.
As playing funk styles is a passion of Andrew’s, he has written this instructional book “100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves” 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 Bass part playing along with a rhythm section of guitar, drums, keyboards 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.
A Spotify playlist containing the songs that have influenced the grooves can be listened to.
