David Garibaldi’s modern educational classic returns as an interactive, play-along app experience for drummers!
Using the original backing tracks from Tower of Power’s 2008 release The Oakland Zone, The Code of Funk breaks down the elements that have made Garibaldi’s funky, linear, syncopated style a touchstone for drummers around the world for decades.
Use the built in mixing console to design the perfect track to assist your study, isolating subtleties or removing the drums entirely when you’re ready to replace them.
Talk downs of each drum part are included, as well as detailed transcriptions of all tunes. Lead sheets have been included for all tracks — written by David, exclusive to the app — giving you a bird’s eye view of each tune.

|Welcome to the ERSKN Afro-Cuban Essentials Play-Along app, featuring Aaron Serfaty. I have known Aaron for many years, and he is the “go-to” guy for Afro-Cuban and Brazilian drumming in Los Angeles. He is also my trusted colleague at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. We are delighted to present this app to you. It has been designed and created for use by all musicians who are interested in increasing their understanding of listening to Afro-Cuban music and raising the level of their skills and artistry when playing this music.The heart of Afro-Cuban music is understanding clave and the role each instrument plays, all while being able to play the “standards” of this music in common keys and at different tempos. With the combined professional and pedagogical experiences between the three musicians, these tracks target and explore an essential variety of requisite Afro-Cuban modes and styles.
Using the built-in mixer, the user can create their own combo: full rhythm section (trio), music-minus-piano, music-minus-bass, music-minus-drums, or solo tracks of drums-only, bass-only or piano-only PLUS any combination of congas, bongo and timbale percussion tracks. There are click-track and count-off options, too.
PDF lead sheets are included for the rhythm section. These charts can be printed or emailed from the app. There are also transcriptions of some of the piano montuno patterns as well as all of the relevant beats and patterns Aaron plays on a variety of instruments (drum set, congas, bongo and timbales, etc.)
There’s no better musical homework than listening and playing…and now, you can do both, any time and anywhere!

|This app has been designed and created for use by all musicians who are interested in perfecting their jazz skills and artistry. The heart of jazz is being able to play the blues and “standards” in common keys and at different tempos. With a century’s worth of professional and pedagogical experiences between the three musicians, these tracks target and explore an essential variety of requisite jazz modes and styles that we have found to be of the most use.Utilizing the built-in mixer, you can create your own combo: full rhythm section (trio), music-minus-piano, music-minus-bass, music-minus-drums, or solo tracks of drums-only, bass-only or piano-only. There are click-track and count-off options as well.
PDF lead sheets are included in the keys of C, Bb and Eb. These charts can be printed or emailed from the app. In the case of some well-known standards, we have adhered to the form and chord changes of the songs unless otherwise noted. The melodies to these tunes can easily be found on-line or in a RealBook, etc. There are also some classic tune forms from the post-bop era, making this collection up-to-date and relevant.
As the beboppers say: “Straight ahead and strive for tone…”
There’s no better way to play better than to play more. Keep on swinging.
