Watch the Funk Injection online guitar lesson by Oz Noy from Essentials: Funk Rhythm Guitar
The hardest part of playing funk rhythm is finding the space between the other instruments. This track doesn't offer much room, so it can be difficult to find something that doesn't feel busy and actually helps the groove. We're in D7#9 for this track, mixing together three different parts: a funk rhythm section, a section using triads, and a muted funk line. Focus on transitioning between the sections while hitting the spaces that the other instruments leave open.
