David Bennett Cohen – Blues And Rock Techniques For Hammond Organ

The Hammond organ, especially the B-3 combined with the Leslie speaker, has long been an integral part of modern popular music.You can hear the “classic” sound of the Hammond organ in blues, gospel, jazz, rock, and even on some contemporary singer/songwriter songs (try to picture Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” or Procol Harem’s “Whiter Shade of Pale” without that distinctive sound).
Sometimes the organ is used as “padding,” providing background textures using only its sustain capabilities, and at other times it takes a more prominent role as a lead instrument. We’re proud to present the first lesson to teach the organ as a blues and rock instrument for learning players. David Cohen starts with the basics, detailing all the parts of the Hammond B-3 and showing how to get the unique sounds associated with this instrument using presets, drawbars, percussion tablets, vibrato switch, volume pedal and other devices.
Then it’s into the playing! David covers some of the! most important licks and grooves you’ll need to get out and play in a band. His love of the instrument comes across as he teaches riffs, blues scales, chord changes, and many of the specific musical tricks that work only on organ. Each tune is illustrated by a top New York rock band to give you a feeling for how it should be performed.
You’ll learn to play a fast shuffle in C; a funk tune in E; a medium-tempo shuffle in A (with a Jimmy Smith riff); the all-important slow blues in G; and a funk rhythm with a G minor to C (I – IV) groove. In each of these pieces, you’ll learn how to improvise solos, use licks and fills, play a variety of bass lines, and become an integral part of a rockin’ blues band.
