Watch the Funk online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 7: Style Variations
In this section you will learn the ins and outs of Funk guitar. Especially as it relates to more rock style funk of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Working on funk rhythm will really improve your overall feel and rhythm for anything else you are playing.
TIP! Whatever you sit down to practice on, remember, breaking it down into small chunks will help you play it better, and remember it better. Take a lick or rhythm or pattern and see if you can break it down. Maybe you can look at what your right hand is doing, then what your left hand is doing. Look at each little technique involved and work on those individually. Once you have all the little pieces sounding good - then glue it all back together and voila! You will find that the whole has been strengthened by working on each little part!
