This book features many of the styles that make funk drumming so challenging, yet rewarding, and is meant for all players---from beginners to advanced drummers. Learn everything from New Orleans funk, R&B, and soul to '70s funk, modern alternative funk, drum 'n' bass, and hip-hop. You'll also learn drum beats in the styles of famous funk artists like The Meters, Herbie Hancock, James Brown, The Funk Brothers, Booker T. & the MG's, Tower of Power, Sly & the Family Stone, Parliament-Funkadelic, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more.
