I like how you connect this kind of rhythm playing with the hip hop genre, it gives it a good impression of the style versatility of the funk rhythm style. Sounds awesome as usual Stephane!
Sounds awesome! I love this type of funk!
This is a very good exercise in the subtleness of upstroke and downstroke accents and timing. Very nice, man! I really like the way, in these type of lessons that you're making.
i LOVE it stephane, love the tone, the playing, the groove, everything is right, you are one tasty guitar player!
Very glad you like the lesson & thanks a lot for the nice comments guys!
Good & useful lesson for my rhythm exercises
Hip-hop is a form of electronic music where DJs took samples of old funk bands and made new songs out of these sampled grooves/riffs. This is what it is all about
Great lesson Stephane, love your groove and tone.

Great timing and useful lesson Stephane
Cool, thanks a lot!
Today we gonna play some funk rhythm guitar with a swing feel (or hip-hop feel).
This swing feel is accomplished by delaying the second and fourth 16th of each beat : so your upstrokes should be slightly delayed. Of course the amount of swing can vary from one groove to another.
Start by working slowly with a metronome, scratching all the 16ths notes with your right-hand.
Also try to implement various "degrees" of swing feel.
Have fun & funky practice !
