Guitar Lesson 4: Funk patterns and rhythmic grooves


SUBSCRIBE, RATE and REVIEW on iTunes: iTunes

More detailed show notes to follow, but broadly the structure is:

  1. Intro
  2. Can’t take my eyes off of you = harmonic ideas and rhythmic playing
  3. Looking at diatonic chord shapes in a single position
  4. Le Freak – Chic = advanced rhythmic ideas and funk jamming and soloing.  Left hand muting.  I found Justin’s lessons on this really useful: Le Freak (Chic) Guitar lesson
  5. Eagles and Bad Company riffs = for chicken picking ideas and dynamics
  6. Money for Nothing including the background to the song.  What a riff!! GuitarJamz – Money for Nothing lesson
  7. Foo Fighters rhythmic ideas

It was a challenging, interesting and incredibly useful lesson and I hope that you get as much out of it as I did.  Enjoy!
