So you want to play funk? Here we present tu­ition ex­er­cises in­spired by the play­ing of some of the greats of funk drum­ming that will hope­fully help you to hone your funky drum­ming and deepen your pocket. From Par­lia­ment to Prince, from the Me­ters to Mo­town, these are the in­spi­ra­tional and in­flu­en­tial play­ers who have come to per­son­ify the idea of the ‘Funky Drum­mer’.

Any wannabe stu­dent of funk drum­ming has to tip their hat to these play­ers – their tight pocket play­ing and in­cred­i­ble, in­no­va­tive grooves have de­fined the funk genre. Over the fol­low­ing pages, we run-down our pick of the play­ers who have shaped the genre through their drum­ming, and you can learn how to play like some of these leg­ends with our round-up of artist-in­spired funk tu­ition.
