About The Author

D. Scott Williams

The Funky Six is a unique method book for intermediate to advanced drummers that explores the Funk Shuffle, playing in 6/8, and other sextuplet-oriented grooves. It provides a comprehensive, easy to follow method to develop fluency in sextuplet based funk, rock and fusion styles.

Organized in a concise, practice-friendly format, the book contains clearly defined sections developing: the Funk-Shuffle hand pattern, bass drum independence, cymbal variations, accent movements, 9 interesting 6/8 timekeeping variations, open hi-hat applications in both the shuffle and 6/8 feels, interesting ideas to integrate into the funk-shuffle and 6/8 feels, and much more!

The presentation of these concepts and exercises is designed to make The Funky Six a book that drummers can easily revisit, practicing particular sections as their ability with these grooves strengthens.
