Build and Understand Funk Rhythms to Develop Great Musical Feel
Funk Guitar Mastery focuses on developing the rhythmic and technical skills needed to develop and understand how a funk guitar part functions and sits in the band. As proficiency is developed, funky chords, riffs, techniques and approaches are added to get you grooving like a pro.

Great Musical Feel is Developed Through Great Musical Practice
Funk is a music based on rhythm and feel. Long periods of static chord vamps come alive by the use of subtle and varied musical techniques, and these techniques must be built on a foundation of rock-solid rhythmic control.

To build the rhythmic skills needed to play tight funk guitar (or indeed, any music), guitarists must learn to accurately perform almost any rhythm on the guitar before learning how to sit tightly in the groove of the song.

Funk Guitar Mastery Develops Perfect Rhythm from the Ground Up
The first half of Funk Guitar Mastery focuses on developing tight, accurate rhythm skills from first principles. For guitarists, funk is a music that is all about playing accurate and groovy 1/16th notes. Every possible pattern of 1/16th notes is addressed and then combined into original and authentic funk guitar parts. Essential skills such as scratches, rests, triplets and chord stabs are also introduced.

The second half of the book introduces the vital elements of groove, chord embellishments (such as adding slides and melody notes), chord progressions, riff based ideas and improvisation.

Both halves combine seamlessly to develop creative, musical and interesting funk guitar parts. Throughout, the emphasis is on listening to, and locking in with the bass and drums to help you form a tight, functional, grooving rhythm section.
