Watch the Shining Rhythm online guitar lesson by Oz Noy from Essentials: Funk Rhythm Guitar
Now let me break this down. Again, this is a groove on the E7 chord. When playing these funk parts, it's important to find the "pocket" that you'll be playing in and stay in it the best you can. This can be easily achieved by keeping your hand moving up and down through whatever right hand pattern you're playing, just hitting the notes as "accents" of the rhythm. We'll look at how to use the Mixolydian scale to form the funk line at the end of the track and how to mute to get the sound of the second guitar part.
