Watch the Twister: Rhythm online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues-Rock Evolution
Do you got the funk? Funk comes in many forms, from Miles Davis to Parliament/Funkadelic to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but it all stems from the undisputed king, James Brown.
The CD James Brown's 20 All Time Greatest Hits is required listening, featuring the work of longtime Brown guitarist Jimmy Nolen. Check him out on "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Cold Sweat" and "Get On The Good Foot" for a schooling in groove, minimalism and, well, funk.
