This guitar lesson covers the basics of funk rhythm guitar. This style of guitar has been popularized by such players as John Frusciante and Prince. The basic rhythmic subdivision for funk is the 16th note. Within this video I will show you how to practice various rhythms so you can really feel where every sixteenth note lies within the beat.
After a while of practicing these rhythmic patterns and the ones still to come, you will start to just feel the rhythm and fully understand how funk rhythm guitar parts are created.
