    Hello, everybody!

    I'm currently working with a drummer in a kind of work-n-jam sessions. We are working through he "Essential Styles for drummer and bassist" book, tackling a style at home, working on it together and endi with a jam over a song, or over a rhythm.

    Can you please advice some songs that work well in a drummer and bassist only kind of context?

    For example, we jammed on "Come together" by Beatles, since the drums and bass are pretty much enough to define the song and follow the structure.
    Any style is welcome (we actually want to get out of familiar zone).

    Try 'I cut like a buffalo' by The Dead Weather. There's some fat keys in there but you can either drop or substitute them with some effects on bass if you swing that way. I think if done right that one could groove pretty hard.
