In The Funky Beat, David focuses on combining funk and jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms to extend his own innovative style. By dissecting his grooves and musical choices for each song on the CD, David demonstrates how to develop musical skills and how to create a signature sound. This book/audio package includes eight charts and two CDs mixed with and without drums for play-along usage. As a bonus, David transcribes and explains eleven of his legendary Tower of Power grooves.
