  • July 04, 2011 Maybe not the funkiest but pretty funky

    The riffs are quite good, but the collection would benefit from more variation specially in tempo. As to the voice in between each sample, he sounded very, very depressed and not at all funky.

    Maybe not the funkyest riffs known to mankind, but pretty good. The book is well structured even though not all of the riffs are the best,
