Funk music came about in the mid 60's as an offshoot of R&B. Newly prominent, the electric bass rapidly became the bottom end of popular music. When the style spilled over into the 70's, great bassists like James Jamerson, Anthony Jackson, Louis Johnson & Verdine White provided the grooves that sent the world to the dance floor. The disco era was born. This book does not cover techniques and concepts. There are no exercises, just 101 bass patterns in this style. CD includes 99 full demo tracks.
