A fantastic historical and in-depth study of R&B drumming from soul to funk to hip-hop. Practical grooves from each era of R&B are studied and developed through specifically designed exercises. Topics include practice tips, developing the funky bass drum and hi-hat, creating and playing with loops, and what are considered the Ten Commandments of Soul, Funk, and Hip-Hop (the top ten recordings from each era). This book not only pays homage to the R&B drummers of the past, but gives the reader a fortune of invaluable information both in history and playing.
