Progressive Rhythm Section Grooves For Bass and Drums
Craig Lauristsen and Steve Richter - Book and CD
Rhythm Section Grooves For Bass and Drums features over 120 examples of
grooves which can be used in a variety of musical situations. Versatility is
something which is expected from any modern rhythm section. Musicians
regardless of their specialist style, need an understanding of many different
styles, so as to equip them with the skills necessary to perform in a world
where change and expansion occur continuously. This book is designed
for use by bass players and drummers intent on creating a solid rhythm
section capable of performing with versatility in any situation.
This book is split into ten broad stylistic categories, each listing
examples in order of difficulty. The book's layout is designed for
versatility of usage and readers are encouraged to access relevant
information from anywhere within the book
Each example includes a tempo setting which is the speed which the authors
feel works best for that particular groove. The authors also suggest that you
practice each example at various tempos. Technically difficult examples
especially should first be practiced at a comfortably slow tempo. Remember
that speed comes from precise, controlled playing.
