The interaction of bassist and drummer contributes significantly to the quality of music ensemble performance. Especially short, recurring rhythmic and melodic patterns (so-called grooves) form the rhythmic and harmonic foundation of musical pieces in genres such as rock, funk, Latin, and jazz. This makes a groove an essential building block (cell) on which harmony and melody instruments can build upon. Despite the importance of the interaction of both instruments, this aspect is rarely dealt with in instrument learning literature.

This first groove package contains 10 freshly-composed funk grooves for you to expand your groove vocabulary. In addition to the main groove, two possible variations are provided as an example of where to go next. Each groove includes both a score and tablature notation for bass and drums. In addition, the underlying musical characteristics such as the meter, syncopation, scales, and the applied playing techniques (like hammer-on, pull-off, staccato, etc.) are explained in detail to enhance the learning experience.
