A fun and comprehensive overview of funk drumming.

The Total Funk Drummer is a unique and exciting journey through the diverse world of funk drumming. You'll start with basic instruction on keeping time, and end up playing highly syncopated beats and fills using advanced techniques like linear drumming. The drum lessons cover many of the styles that make funk drumming so challenging, yet incredibly rewarding to master, and is meant for all players-from beginners to advanced drummers. You'll learn what distinguishes one funk style from the next and how to drum for New Orleans funk, R&B, soul to '70s funk, modern alternative funk, drum 'n' bass, and hip-hop. You'll also learn drum beats in the styles of famous funk artists like The Meters, Herbie Hancock, James Brown, The Funk Brothers, Booker T. & the MG's, Tower of Power, Sly & the Family Stone, Parliament-Funkadelic, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more. The instructional CD features a full band demonstrating the examples in the book.
