Watch the Dont Forget The Funk online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Dont Forget The Funk - Rhythm 22 is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from 50 Blues Rhythms You MUST Know.


The 5th string root 9th chord we learned in the previous example is often considered THE funk chord. I said it before, there is a lot of funky blues out there and 9th chords are the engine that makes funk guitar playing run.

I felt that it was really important to move this shape up the neck and show you how these chords could be transposed. I also threw in a couple licks to make it a little more interesting.

Have fun with this one!
