Standards.
« on: January 05, 2009, 07:23 PM »
Hey guys I was just wondering if you could give me a list of what you guys concider standards, such as rock standards, funk standars, jazz, etc.

I know of a lot of jazz standards, all you really need is a real book.

I'm mostly looking for rock and funk ones.

Thanks bros.
