dcr Posted January 15, 2003 Share Posted January 15, 2003 OK, so I'm diving into the Jamerson thing, & I'm not taking it casually. A huge key to his style, & to funk & R/B playing in general, is tight 16th-note grooves. What's the best way to learn to play these at good speed, cleanly, & with even notes? Drills, exercises, method books, tutorials, whatever...I want to learn to do it right. Man, picking up the Jamerson book is one of the best things I've ever done, bass-wise. It's like a revelation: I hear his lines & I think, Yes!! THAT is the sort of thing I've always wanted to play! I hadn't really paid that much attention to him before, but now that I hear him I'm blown away not only by his playing, but also by how much his grooves match the sorts of grooves I hear in my head. Anyway, the trick is getting it out of my head... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
