The ability to read, play, and make a convincing, consistent groove in a sixteenth note rhythm is one of the more formidable challenges facing a contemporary rhythm section player. This book attempts to address that challenge by supplying chord progressions with different syncopated rhythmic patterns. Practice of these exercises will lead to an understanding of the style, and ability to execute the rhythms common to funk. Comping Styles for Bass is a collection of 36 different progressions with both guitar and bass parts written out, so a bass player can see what the guitar is doing and also get used to reading bass parts in a funk style. It includes a CD which demonstrates the progressions in a trio setting of guitar, bass, and drums. It is a useful tool for learning to interact with a rhythm section.
