In this Homespun series, you’ll learn to get the thrilling organ sounds that have enhanced blues, jazz, gospel, and rock ’n’ roll throughout the history of popular music. David Cohen shows you how to create those sounds, and how to play the licks and grooves that have made this instrument world famous!
David starts by detailing the parts of the Hammond B-3, the most popular model for this kind of music. (If you don’t have a Hammond B-3, other organ models will work as well.)
For those just starting out, he shows how the presets, drawbars, percussion tablets, vibrato switch, volume pedal, and other devices help create the unique effects for which the organ is known. Then it’s into the music!
Backed by a top New York blues band, David teaches riffs, blues scales, bass lines, chord changes, and turnarounds, along with the specific musical tricks that give the Hammond organ its unique place in the music world.
Taking five distinct pieces—fast and medium tempo shuffles, two funk grooves, and the all-important slow blues—David teaches how to improvise solos, use licks and fills, play a variety of bass lines, and integrate the organ’s exciting sound into a rockin’ blues band!
