Description

Time to get down to some serious funky rhythms with the Funky Dunky Blues!  This funky blues piano duet is in the key of G major and features a groovy Secondo lower accompaniment with a rhythmic and catchy Primo upper melody.

Funky Dunky Blues will suit intermediate pianists (PRIMO part) at the grade 3 (ABRSM) standard.

Make sure you pay special attention to the accents, short notes and rests which make will make this duet rhythmically syncopated and 'tight' (as they say in funky circles). Quavers are played straight, not swung with this number :).

To get 'in the groove', I recommend listening to the hip sounds of artists such as Earth Wind & Fire, or Tower of Power. These guys will help you to 'feel' the types of syncopated rhythms that also feature in Funky Dunky Blues.

If there's just yourself at the piano, check out the playalong MP3 track which comes with this sheet music. This includes the secondo part with a dynamic bass and drums accompaniment. There's also a slower practice version to get you started as well as a play-along backing for both players.
