Watch the Fat Shuffle online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Rock Guitar For Beginners
This is a mixture between rock, jazz, blues, country, and funk. Such greats as Guthrie Govan, Greg Howe, Scott Henderson, and Chick Corea presented advanced versions of these concepts and really flipped the whole music world upside down. These styles have forever changed the way we look at music. These musicians took it to the next level and one day you will too. Here we are going to work on some rhythms for this and break down the ideas and changes. The background to many of these songs still have just 3-4 changes and these artists take it and expand and expand the possibilities until the musical balloon pops. This only has two chord changes so when we solo over it, it will be a blast. But for now we want to really lock it down. I remember hearing Vai talk about how important rhythm was to him and how important it was to sit in the groove. Sometimes it seems like we have it already but go back and really be critical. Remember you are your worst critic. This track has a great rhythm section so really feel the beat. Have a great time with this.
