Really really liked this Ivan, great playing and immensely likeable!
Made me smile!
The slides in the beginning rule. Great song Ivan!
Great topic and rhythm lesson thump is really important to mute and play funk chords
I see it out of sync...it's just me or what?
Thanks for that Ivan, John Frusciante uses this fretting technique a lot so I can really make use of this lesson
Great work Ivan, nice job as always! Working with the thumb can be a great addicion to your playing. Addicion??
Excellent lesson Ivan!! Love this groove!
This sounds great and looks like a lot of fun. Cool lesson
Groooooove men!! hahaha!! cool Ivan!! You are Great my friend!!
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it
PS I'll make adjustments right away if you think that there are sync issues, I haven't noticed it when preparing the lesson.
Maybe it's only me
Ivan you're the man!! It's raining funk licks!! cool funky lesson.
PS. what is the key behind such an amazing amount of licks-vocabulary?
I used only one chord here, and that is B dominant one.
The scales that are often in use with this kind of track are:
B minor pentatonic
B mixolydain (for chords)
Great groove Ivan.
Great sound and playing Ivan. Interesting and useful as always!

I don't know how I missed this one - I usually manage to watch each video GMC puts out, especially when its from one of my favorite instructors! Found this one while searching on how to improve my left-hand thumb incorporation to do your Brian Setzer lesson. Anyway, enough paragraphs, awesome lesson ivan!
Hehe, awesome mate, nice to see you've found it! Have fun!
One-man band !
Hey GMC, welcome to my new Funky Lesson. In this lesson we are going to do some nice funky licks that involve out thumb for playing bass lines.
Playing bass lines has some advantages. For example you can have all other fingers free for some treble string licks. Here we are trying to create a feel that there are two guitars. One for bass lines, and other one for rhythmic treble lines.
You can use these 5 grooves as basic ideas to develop your own bass thumb licks. Playing with the thumb can be very fun, but approach it as you would any other exercise - with metronome.
This lesson contains:
- Fretting bass strings with thumb finger
- Cool Funky Licks
- Dominant chord strumming and rhythmic patterns
