A must-have for any drummer interested in learning funk.
On Breaking the Code DVD, world-renowned drummer David Garibaldi demonstrates and dissects the patterns he used for such Tower of Power classics as "Page One," "Pocketful of Soul," "Back in the Day," "East Side", and "The Oakland Stroke." Multiple camera angles clearly show his feet, hands, and kit, putting the viewer one-on-one with the master drummer and teacher. Running time: 2 hours, 20 minutes.
This cutting-edge book/CD package brings the music of David Garibaldi and the music of Tower of Power to your practice room and provides an in-depth look at the concepts that David uses to create his futuristic, yet old-school drum grooves. The 80-page The Code of Funk book includes: detailed transcriptions by David, of his drum performance in each of eight tunes from T.O.P's most recent album "Oakland Zone", incisive commentary, photos, a biography, a suggested listening list and more. The CD with all 8 tracks minus David's drums, allows you to "sit in" with this legendary band. Each track provides "clicktrack" count-in, followed by a complete "music minus drums" stereo mix including the lead vocals and solos. The bonus DVD-ROM with instrumental versions of these tracks in file formats can be looped, slowed down using programs such as Acid and GarageBand and remixed using multi-track studio software such as ProTools, Cakewalk, or Nuendo for further exploration and study. Breaking the Code includes a ReadMe file and also a drum tutorial on video with detailed instructions.
