Funk Blues Rhythm - Volume 1


Take a step in to the fun world of syncopation with 5 funk-inspired guitar rhythm parts, played over a 12-bar progression.


Overview

Funk Blues Rhythm - Volume 1

Rhythm guitar skills are like muscles: you don’t realize how under-developed they are until you try to use them for something different. Well, this course is different.

If you’ve only ever studied swing, or straight ahead rockin’ blues rhythm, this course will befuddle your brain. Playing on the off-beats is not something most of us are born being able to do, but if you slow it down, you can start working those rhythm muscles with a little bit of funk.
