I went through "Future Sounds" and "The Funky Beat" religiously. FS really opened my ears up to new things, as the book presents to you the concept of permutation e.g. pushing a phrase forward by 1/16th intervals. So, in a bar of 4/4 there are 15 exercises; the "root" and from there each example is written with the "one" being a different part of the phrase. Kinda like this- imagine a clock, 12 noon is Top Dead Center (TDC). FS is like saying "ok, I'm gonna set "1 o'clock" as TDC. Or "I'm gonna make 5:00 TDC."

Then "The Funky Beat" has great playalong tracks+charts.

he's truly one of the greatest. if you like him check out Harvey Mason (from Herbie Hancock's Headhunters).
he pretty much invented funk drumming as we know it today.

DG is outstanding, no question. I saw Harvey Mason in concert once....truly a monster.

I sat 6 inches in front of his bass drum once at MI. He sit's down and says "When I practice, I play this". He played paradiddles between the HiHAt and Snare and moved the accents around the kit at a slow, even tempo. In 10 seconds he totally demystified his style in a way that eveybody in the room understood.

A great teacher.

If you haven't heard it yet, and you want to hear Garibaldi at his best live, check out Tower Of Power's "Soul Vaccination: Live" album. Good GOD, that man is awesome. One of my heroes.
