"FUNKADOSIS!" (67 pages)
This volume of “Funkadosis!",
is an intuitive collection of funk "riffs" and lines, which captures the essence of this ever popular and danceable musical genre.
Broken down into three sub-categories, and organized by key, they include:
Classic "Old School" Funk Lines
12/8 Shuffle Funk Lines
Jazz Fusion Funk Lines
Working the lines in this book through all 12 keys is a fun & productive way to become familiar with both the lines & the keys. While the lines themselves tend to be harmonically static, they can be rhythmically involved, demanding a certain level of finger dexterity.
Although no chord changes are given, the approximate harmonic environment throughout, might best be determined as a dominant 7#9, with Dorian, Mixolydian, Blues or Gmin6 being the most common scale colors; with Altered and Diminished thrown in with some of the Fusion Funk lines.
One thing to remember - that unlike neurosis, psychosis, acidosis or halitosis, ...there ain't no cure for the Funkadosis!
