Watch the Similar Beat online guitar lesson by Oz Noy from Essentials: Funk Rhythm Guitar

This groove uses the famous funk C7/9 chord, and is based on the James Brown song "Same Beat." We'll take the chord up a half step to create the movement in the rhythm part, using muting to help keep time within the pocket. As we saw in the last track, there are two guitar parts playing at the same here, using muting and the Mixolydian scale in the second part to complement the rhythm section.
