You've Got to Funk a Drei

You’ve got to Funk a Drei! 

A bit of humor never hurts:-) I will reference for you…The title is from a Tower of Power tune – and Drei means the Number 3 in German. (Well…At least I think its funny haha!)

Leaving my career as a comedian behind…lets check out the stuff!

Develop the skill to phrase over the Barline.

Tired of sounding flat? Tired of your ideas and licks? There is a way to expand your vocabulary right away! Through the study of Rhythm!

In this lesson we are learning to open up your phrasing and achieve what some of my students refer to as a “rolling time feel”- More commonly known as playing over the barline.

Rhythm is like a kaleidoscope. When you turn the Kaleidoscope it makes different shapes. Think of rhythm as the shapes you see in the kaleidoscope. As you turn your perspective rhythmically, different cyclic melodies will appear. Rhythmic perspective will determine what melody you are hearing in any cycle. In this case I chose what I call the “3 bar cycle” – This “rhythmic melody” if you will, is pervasive in western drumming culture. Check out this lesson and enjoy!!

We have the lesson in several formats- MP3 And video

This mp3 is great to take a long with you to listen on your car etc. A big part of this study is getting the ear to hear these phrases. The lessons is counted out for you in lots of detail.

The PDf files feature all the exercises. And the Video is visual reinforcement of all the material. Its a huge study and i am sure you will love this.
