Watch the Good Funk online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 7: Advanced Styles & Techniques

Good Funk - Groove #43 is a video guitar lesson presented by Stu Hamm and is sourced from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know.


Groove # 43 is a real old school, good time funk number with some of the same syncopated rhythms as the hit "Good Times". There is a lot of space in this groove, which makes it essential that you really nail the timing of the notes to synch up with Bernie's kick drum. Your notes need to be staccato here to accentuate the space between the notes. Also note the the hammer-on/open note slapping line at the end of the phrase - this is pretty quick and may take some time to get up to speed.
