50 R&B Bass Grooves You Must Know, Andrew Ford generously shares essential bass lines and grooves inspired by the music of James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, Marvin Gaye, The Brothers Johnson, Chic, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5 and many other chart-topping artists.

Hosted by Andrew Ford, who has performed with legendary artists in almost every major genre of music, while also having a Masters degree in Education.

Guitar Lab's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students "play" their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation, which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation, at any tempo, without change in pitch.

Professor Otto Lidenbrock took you on a journey to the center of the Earth in Jules Verne's classic science fiction novel back in 1864. Wild ride that was but bass players would consider that a walk in the park compared to the fretboard journey that our own Professor of Groove, Andrew Ford has mapped out for you in 50 R&B, Soul, and Funk Bass Grooves You Must Know. All aboard Andrew's guided tour to the epicenter of groove...

If it gets your feet tapping, your head nodding and your body swaying, then the music you're listening to is genetically tied to the renaissance of groove that was sparked back in the 60's and 70's with R&B, Soul and Funk music. If you're familiar with that music then you can clearly recognize its influence on virtually every style of popular music today, from rock to jazz to hip hop to contemporary R&B.

Make no mistake about it; while Andrew does examine these timeless grooves, this is no history course. Andrew presents the material and connects the dots in such a way that you'll be able to apply the underlying techniques, rhythms and bass grooves in whatever style of music you play today. Consider these 50 bass lessons as your personal rite of passage to the land of groove.

Along your journey, Andrew will pass on the fretboard genius of master bass players like Louis Johnson, Rocco Prestia, Tommy Cogbill, David Hood, Verdine White, Kenny Burke, Bobby Watson, Bernard Edwards, David Shields, Marcus Miller, Duck Dunn, Rusty Allen, James Jamerson, Willie Weeks, Larry Graham, Leroy Hodges, Anthony Jackson, Rod Temperton, Chuck Rainey and many other giants of groove.

Andrew generously shares essential bass lines and grooves inspired by the music of James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, Marvin Gaye, The Brothers Johnson, Chic, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Parliament, Earth Wind and Fire, Cameo, Prince, Tower of Power, Kool & the Gang, Wilson Pickett, Chaka Khan, Rick James, The Meters, Barry White, Ashford & Simpson, Ohio Players, Staple Singers, King Curtis, Average White Band, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson and many other chart-topping artists.

All of the grooves are presented over a rhythm track and then broken down note-by-note, technique-by-technique. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you get all of the rhythm tracks to practice with by yourself.
