  • These 10 examples are inspired by the likes of Tower of Power, Kool and the Gang, James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire, and many more. Here I have grouped ten grooves based on details used by different bands, from them I have created my own rhythms. I play the guitars but you can hear all instruments like drums, percussion, synths and horns, so you can create your own funky grooves.
