Take a step into the fun world of syncopation with 5 funk-inspired guitar rhythm parts played over a 12-bar progression.
Rhythm guitar skills are like muscles: you don’t realize how underdeveloped 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 baffle 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.
In this lesson we'll cover a few aspects of the course, and learn the first rhythm.
Rhythm 2 is just a bit more difficult than rhythm 1. We'll break it into two levels and work on each.
Rhythm 3 is quite a bit more difficult than the first two, so we'll break it into 3 levels this time.
Rhythm 4 is also difficult, so again we'll study it in 3 different levels.
We end the course on a slightly easier, more bluesy note with Rhythm 5.
