Watch the Repro Mechanism online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 30 Funk Rhythms You MUST Know
Continuing to examine funk rhythms through the genius of the James Brown, we investigate our second funk rhythm with "Repro Mechanism". The vibe here is born of a funk rhythm guitar mainstay called "Sex Machine" where Phelps "Catfish" Collins lays down iconic rhythm ideas throughout. Just like "Mortal Kombat", this rhythm makes use of SPACE. While a scratch may sneak in during the B section, the intent here is to once again rock those 9th and 9(13) chords with a focus on staccato phrasing while locking in with the ever-important pocket.
