OVERVIEW

Achieve that distinctive blues and rock sound from your Hammond

Veteran musician David Cohen gives an outstanding tutorial on how to get the unique sounds associated with the Hammond B-3 organ by using presets, drawbars, percussion tablets, vibrato switch, volume pedal, and other devices. He teaches several tunes using different styles, plus riffs, rhythm grooves, blues scales, chord changes, soloing, and many of the specific musical tricks that work only on this amazing musical instrument. Each tune is played by a top New York rock band to give a feel for how the organ will sound in performance.

Level 3: Early Intermediate-You have been playing a while and can play some songs and/or instrumentals without too much difficulty. Now you want to move into specific styles, develop your repertoire and increase your technique. The instructor still covers the material in detail, but there are more challenges.

The Hammond organ, especially the B-3 combined with the Leslie speaker, has long been an integral part of modern popular music. David Cohen starts with the basics, detailing all the parts of the Hammond B-3 and showing how to get the unique sounds associated with this instrument using presets, drawbars, percussion tablets, vibrato switch, volume pedal and other devices.

Then it's into the playing! David covers some of the most important licks and grooves you'll need to get out and play in a band. His love of the instrument comes across as he teaches riffs, blues scales, chord changes, and many of the specific musical tricks that work only on organ. Each tune is illustrated by a top New York rock band to give you a feeling for how it should be performed.

You'll learn to play a fast shuffle in C; a funk tune in E; a medium-tempo shuffle in A (with a Jimmy Smith riff); the all-important slow blues in G; and a funk rhythm with a G minor to C (I - IV) groove. In each of these pieces, you'll learn how to improvise solos, use licks and fills, play a variety of bass lines, and become an integral part of a rockin' blues band.

    Comments about Homespun Blues & Rock Techniques for Hammond Organ (DVD):

    This was kind of an "impulse" buy, but as soon as I played the DVD, I knew I struck gold.
    I watched it twice and applied one of the techniques, at a gig later that evening.
    I will now order the Piano version.
    There just isn't much available for Organ technique, and being (somewhat ) new to the B-3 world, I needed the help. I especially like the fact that he shows you different keys, tempo's, then plays the song with a full band.
    Very much worth the cost. So glad I finally made the decision to purchase. No regrets.
