by Matt Smith
UH! OW! Get on the good foot! Jump back! Take it to 'da bridge! Funk has always been a big part of the blues pantheon. Every blues guitar player needs to know how to bring the funk. In this lesson, we'll learn how to play funky sixteenth-note common syncopated rhythms in the style of James Brown's guitarist Jimmy Nolen, and the music of Sly and the Family Stone, parliament/funkadelic, the Meter's Leo Nocentelli. Let's take a look! Launch the lesson.
