Classic Keyboard Riffs and Rhythms by Andrew D. Gordon consists of 40 short riffs, 4 to 16 measures in length, covering Blues, Country, Funk, Gospel, Jazz, Latin, New Age, Reggae, RandB and Rock styles. This book will help "spice up" arrangements of songs by incorporating the techniques used for each of the different styles. There is also an analysis giving hints on the best way to use these riffs in your playing. It is also a great tool as a source of improvisational ideas. The "American Music Teacher" magazine review said " All in all this is a good book to get to those elusive sounds that make up the contemporary pop style." Recorded at normal and slow tempos.
