Truefire Carl Burnett's 30 Beginner Funk Rhythms TUTORiAL
Fundamental Techniques & Patterns for Funky Guitar Rhythm Parts
Funk is not only a timeless genre of music, it's also an essential rhythm guitar skill that you'll apply across virtually every genre of music. If you're playing classic funk, soul or R&B music, you'll be playing "funky” parts almost exclusively. But you can also bring the "funk” when playing rock, jazz, blues, pop -- you'll even hear some very funky modern country tracks.

Carl Burnett's collection of 30 Beginner Funk Rhythms will equip you with enough funky firepower to spice up any jam, song or composition, across virtually every style of music.

”Learning how to lock into the rhythm section with a tight syncopated guitar part that keeps the audience tapping their feet is more about feel than anything else.

The quickest and easiest way to develop that feel is simply practicing playing funky parts over funky tracks. That's exactly what we'll do together here in this collection of 30 funk rhythm guitar parts.

We'll work with 6 funky jam tracks in different keys and tempos. I'll show 5 different rhythm approaches for each one of those tracks.

Along the way, I'll show you essential funk chord voicings, right-hand techniques, versatile single-note approaches, funk scratches, double-stops and other key "funky” approaches and techniques.

Most importantly -- you'll be able to practice and playalong with me throughout the entire course!”

Carl will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You'll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you'll be able to use TrueFire's learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson.

You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are also included to work with on your own.

Grab your guitar and let's get funky with Carl Burnett!

”Blues is a style of music, just like funk, that’s really all about the feel and the groove.

Ever had a band mate ask ‘Can you make it more funky??’ Yes you can!”

Guitarists are often required to come up with a "tight" rhythm part. This is especially true with funk, soul and classic R&B music, but "tight" rhythm parts are also frequently called for in blues, rock, jazz, and country music as well. Carl Burnett’s Tight Rhythm edition of Funk House will funkify your rhythm parts whatever style you prefer playing.

”A "tight" rhythm part consists of two key elements; 2 or 3 note chords such as triads, double or triple stops. AND a percussive, often-muted rhythmic approach. Both elements designed to NOT conflict with what the bass player and other musicians are doing. In short, a part that locks into the pocket.

Playing repetitive, single-note lines as a rhythm guitar part is commonly referred to as a "bubble part.” Widely used in funk, soul and classic R&B music, bubble parts are also often used in blues, rock, country, and pop tunes. Note selection, rhythmic approaches, melodic composition, and of course, groove are all critical considerations when composing your own bubble parts for a particular tune. In short, a bubble part that locks into the pocket.
