Watch the Minor Third online guitar lesson by Kai Eckhardt from Atomic Bass: Reactive Intervals
This groove is in the funk/rock spectrum and relies on little gimmicks to make it speak. Notice how I am bending the top note to get vibrato effect. The open A works as an anchor for the pull-offs in the left hand. Make sure you spend enough time with your basic diminished drills, or this one may get you dazed and confused.
