  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 37

    It's funky time with some cool guitar pattern that can be heard on 1.000s of funk/soul/motown records. This lesson focus on precise 16th notes timing muted strings (with left and right hand) to get this percussive sound. Also some nice single notes licks that can spice up your playing by just using the E minor pentatonic.

    Always start slowly to get the right feel for it.

    Enjoy the funky groove!
