Watch the Jersey Shore Prince online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 30 Funk Rhythms You MUST Know

Rhythm 28 sounds huge because of the liberal use of open strings. With a careful technique, you can use open strings in this way to create depth in your rhythm ideas without stepping too far out of the realm. That said, arching your fingers is important in order to allow those open strings to come through. Think back to "Super Duper Bad" and what needed to be done to get that Dm9 voicing to ring the way it needed to – same deal here.

"Jersey Shore Prince" came from my time spent playing in funk bands in the late 90's and early 2000's in and around where I grew up. I picked up many components of my funk rhythm guitar approach from the guitar players I worked with, including my go-to minor voicing – m7(4) – and my penchant for perfect dyads as well as the aforementioned open string voicings.
