I've been working through David Overthrows book, "Beginning Bass For Adults." Great book and I learned alot but the last chapter deals with funk. I don't listen to funk nor have I ever. I don't feel the urge. My question is, if I take what's there and work on it, will it help me anywhere down the line? I don't plan on playing funk or listening to it and I'm not interested in it. Has anyone not liked it but had a use for it? I guess it works the same for rock, jazz, country, etc.
