Watch the P-Fuze '72 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 30 Funk Rhythms You MUST Know

Departing from the funk classics for a moment, we go to the first rhythm born of my approaches and composition values. Rhythm 7 was created through a process called "hunting & gathering", hipped to me by this lesson's namesake. Hunting and gathering is a concept Dave "Fuze" Fiuczynski uses and teaches where you explore the vast pantheon of licks and riffs out there already and collect what interests you. From there, you piece together parts into something unique all its own. Such is the case here in "P-Fuze '72", which makes use of ideas from "Flash Light", Fuze's "Vinnie" from the first Screaming Headless Torsos record, and finally "Soul Power/Soul Power '74" from James Brown and Maceo Parker respectively. The m7-m6 change you just learned in Rhythm 6 is the foundation while we'll also introduce a vital new tool: perfect 4th dyads!
