Details

The Funkmasters breaks down the grooves of 23 James Brown songs and includes transcriptions for bass, guitar and drum parts.

Turn the first page and you enter a domain of unrivaled musical feeling and groove, as you become acquainted with names like Jabo Starks, Bernard Odum, Clyde Stubblefield, ‘Sweet’ Charles Sherrell, Bootsy Collins, Jimmy Nolen, ‘Country’ Kellum and the rest of the legendary bassists, guitarists and drummers who ignited the Godfather of Soul’s records and live shows for over three decades.

Twenty-three James Brown classics have been transcribed, broken down into individual lessons, and meticulously recreated on two one-hour CDs for drums, bass and guitar. Also included is a full history of the James Brown band along with rare photos.

The Funkmasters will inspire and enlighten you as your groove takes new direction and find primeval levels of rhythm you never knew were possible. It will challenge your musicianship, your sense of time and most of all, your soul. Are you bad enough to handle it?
