The smooth jazz grooves in this 46 page book feature a variety of contemporary rhythm section styles including R&B, Jazz, Funk, Top 40, Rock, Gospel, Hip Hop and Latin. These stylistic influences are frequently associated with smooth jazz.
On each of the 20 tracks, the groove is separated into 3 melodic ideas. Each melodic idea (example or riff) is played first, by the guitar with the groove, followed by just the rhythm section groove, without the guitar. The 1st example is usually the easiest, the 2nd slightly harder and the 3rd the most difficult.
I have just been given your book as a christmas present - and I am so happy to have it!
Your grooves are amazing! I feel like it is really inspriring.
The book was bought from Musicroom in Brighton on Western Road.
My favourites so far are track 1,2 and 4... I'm on the second riff so far and they are so good!!
