The best funk book ever!
Ivan E., 14.01.2014
The book covers a lot of kick-ass funk patterns, which I use in my everyday playing with different bands (can be adopted for jazz-rock, fusion). First chapters of the book was not so interesting for me, but funk patterns and solos make up for them. Totally incredible, challenging book, which will give you new patterns to play in the everyday drumming and jamming with everybody.

Tolles Buch!
Lennart aus D., 16.01.2020
Dieses Buch gibt sehr schöne Ideen um Funk Grooves zu verschönern oder im Solo schöne Phrasen zu spielen. Nebenbei wird auch das Notenlesen besser. Ich finde es auch toll, dass im Gegensatz zu manch anderem Buch der musikalische Kontext nicht zu kurz kommt, und man nicht das Gefühl hat, zufällig aneinander gereihte Takte zu spielen.
Es ist insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen.

Klasse Übungsbuch aber eher für Fortgeschrittene
Karsten aus E., 13.09.2012
Mit diesem Übungsbuch arbeite ich schon Ende der 80er Jahre. Rick Latham hat ein tolles Funk Groove Werk zusammengestellt, die neuere Ausgabe beinhaltet 2 CD´s die alle Aufgabestellungen anspielen, jedoch im schnellen Tempo was für Anfänger eher ungeignet ist um der Notation zu folgen. Die Beispiele beginnen zwar leicht ( so soll es auch sein) werden dann aber recht schnell um einiges schwerer. Was mir besonders gut gefällt die Mischung von Strokes und Double strokes innerhalb der Funk Grooves. Auch interessant, am Ende Buches, vile Notationen von den Meistern wie z.B. Steve Gadd usw.

Wenn man das Buch intensiv übt hat man schon richtig was auf den Kasten :)

Im Prinzip sehr gut Aber...
16.02.2016
Das Buch an sich ist sehr hilfreich und zeigte mir sehr viele neue funk Rhythmen und neue möglichkeiten.
Zum einen jedoch wurde das Buch in einem zu schmalen Paket geliefert sodass es bei auspacken eine Wellung hatte, und zum anderen waren die beiliegenden CDs direkt über die Noten der letzten Seite geklebt. Um die Noten lesen zu können musste ich also auf mühsame weise die cds runter frimeln. Es ging nicht ohne dabei etwas vom Buch mit abzureißen sodass die Noten nun leicht beschädigt sind. Das war einfach schade und unnötig!
