  1. this looks like a great book!!

    anyone try this out?


    Funkifying the Clave: Afro-Cuban Grooves For Bass and Drums attempts to
    provide drummers and bass players with an understanding of the application
    of Afro-Cuban rhythms to contemporary jazz, funk, and rock. We decided that
    the project should be a joint bass and drum book because the key to
    understanding and executing these types of feels comes from each player's
    awareness of what the other is doing. In seeing how both parts work
    together, it is possible to develop a feel for the particular rhythmic
    relationship that occurs in this type of music, thus enabling you to
    "funkify" your own grooves. Includes 2 audio CDs, where each song is
    available as a full band, without the drum tracks, and minus the bass tracks
    for you to play along with. Also includes complete breakdown analysis of the
    drum and bass guitar examples.

    my teacher worked with it during our "latin period" (after he came back from Brasil ;) ) and i learned much. good stuff.
  3. I picked one of those up at the local bookstore a week ago. I got to the checkout, when I noticed that someone had torn off a good 4 or 5 pages from somewhere in the middle. I figured there must be some pretty interesting stuff in there (or there was no toilet paper in the store restrooms). I had to rush to an appointment, so am going to go back and get another copy tomorrow.

    Yes, but it's an instructional book.

    Off to General Instruction.
  8. I paid CAN$45.95 + Taxes for it (sale). Not bad, considering it retails for US$39.99.
