Watch the Open Up online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Blues Rhythms You MUST Know

#12 is our first example with funky feel. These types of grooves are generated by 16th notes accented at various times throughout the measure.

Many a blues player has layed down a funky tune in his day. Greats like Albert King, B.B, SRV all had funky blues tunes in their set. Modern day players like Robben Ford, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Johnny Lang are playing some funky blues too. The funk rhythms I'll present are some of my favorites and I think you'll dig 'em.

This example is not only a funky groove but, it focuses on open fominant 7th chords. You probably learned these chords a long time ago. Maybe you learned them in your early guitar lessons but haven't used them. I've also thrown in a cool little riff to tie it all together. Great rhythm playing is melodic in its own way. I think the lick helps create melody and won't get in the way of the vocal.

If it does, just take it out when you're ready to sing the blues!
