Watch the Super Funk online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Essentials: Funk Bass Grooves
Since we're introcucing the thumb into our funk playing, this is a good time to plug my TrueFire course
on funk..check it out?
It's important to really listen to how the guitar player is phrasing the line and double it as closely as you can. Have fun with the slides, which are also introduced here for the first time and you'll use them often in this style of music so enjoy!
