Exercises In African American Funk

from Jonathan Joseph:
I have written a book entitled "Exercises In African American Funk" which focus on developing the 3 against 4 poly rhythm. (The material in the book is based on the time I spent working with Bassist Richard Bona.)

One of the most important concepts I have learned in my 40yrs of drumming was to learn to hear the 3 against 4 polyrhythm happening at the same time and be able to move effortlessly between the two rhythms.

The book is a series of exercises designed to help drummers develop this most important concept.

The video demonstrates a few of the concepts discussed in the book.
