Here we are learning a super funky funk beat. That is the funk of Clyde Stubblefield on a classic James Brown track called Cold Sweat.
Recorded in 1967 this drum groove is a drummers' favourite and includes some of the key elements of, what has become known as, the style of funk drumming. Such things include 16th note ghost notes and displaced backbeats.
In this lesson you get the full video breakdown and sheet music.
