  • Hi folks! Welcome to my Funky rhythm workout lesson! Today we're going to play some funky rhythm which is a good exercise for our right hand strumming. Muting is pretty important here. Mute chords with your left hand - don't fret notes, just touch the strings softly (dead notes - in tab it looks like this:


    -x--
    -x--
    -x--
    -x--
    -x--
    -x--
    Your right hand should be relaxed. You'll notice that it's is easier to strum with smaller pick gauges - it will cause a bit softer and more quiet sound though. I used here typical dunlop 1.0 mm pick. Try different configurations and pick the one that suits you best.

    Lesson info:
    BPM: 115
    Time signature: 4/4
    Chords used: Am7, Am7add13, Am9, Dm7, Dm7add13, Em7, Ebm
    Backings: I provided backing tracks from 115 to 40 bpm + 3 minutes jam loop.

    POD XT live preset I used for this lesson:

    Amp: 1967 Class A-30 Top Boost - Drive: 68%; Bass: 41%; Cut: 80%; Treble: 69%; Presence: 0%
    Cab: 4x12 1968 Green 25s
    Reverb" Medium hall: Predelay:50% ; Decay:50% ; Tone:50% ; Mix: 24%
    This preset works cool with Boost+EQ stomp.

    Ask me if you need anything.

    Have fun,
    Kuba
