Watch the Meter Maid online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Blues Architect

To get your straight-eighths groove on, best to spend some time with the music of the Meters, the New Orleans funk band founded in 1967 by keyboardist Art Neville, bassist George Porter, Jr., drummer Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste and guitarist Leo Nocentelli. When guitarists who hate to sing get together, there's a good chance they'll pull out "Cissy Strut," an early hit for the band. Visit The Meters online at
