Outta Sight Funk and R&B Riffs for Bass is designed to help bass players and also keyboard players improve their bass playing technique with a wide range of different Funk riffs and grooves. The book starts off with easier examples and gradually increases in difficulty as the examples become more syncopated. While living in London during his early 20 s Andrew had the opportunity of developing his Funk & R&B skills by playing or jamming with musicians of mainly African & Jamaican descent 3 to 4 times a week. They would jam for hours on end including doing gigs to the early hours of the morning. From this experience it is his feeling that it is important to play and learn from other musicians, however, if one is unable to do so then incorporating this product into your practicing routine is the next best thing. By using this book your funk bass playing will definitely improve.

What is Funk Music
Funk is an Afro American musical style originated by James Brown and later Sly and the Family Stone emphasizing the rhythm and putting melody and harmony in the background. Funk often consists of a complex groove where every instrument is playing a different rhythmic part fitting together like a jigsaw puzzle. Entire songs are written without any or minimal chord changes where one or two riffs form the basis of the song as represented by the examples in this book. One of the most distinctive features of funk music is the role of the bass guitar as a foundation with melodic bass lines at the centerpiece of a funk tune. I have tried to capture both the rhythmic and melodic essence of funk bass in this book.
