Re: Funk studies
This is a problem I have with Latham's site - it gives the impression that there would be reading material along with the DVDs, and there isn't. Kinda pissed me off, and I wrote him about it, with no satisfaction. You need the books with the dvd, end of story.
As far as funk material, Garibaldi is the man. That's my experience, your mileage may vary. I'll trade you my copy of the Latham DVDs for other instructional stuff you may have if you want.
