Watch the The Beach: Rhythm 2 online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Quantum Rock

Funk, Funk and more Funk!!!! Here we are going to utilize some funky pentatonic lines, some 3rds and even some 5 chords. In the first part of this rhythm we are going to take mute funk to the extreme! Just staying in that beautiful pentatonic scale gives us such a nice riffin sound. After that section we elaborate on the chord structure by moving some of the chords to other areas of the fretboard. This gives us a poppin' sound and will make the whole band sound a bit funkier. The guitarist from Tower of Power is really great at this style of playing so be sure to check him out! Now we have arrived at those beautiful 3rds and outro to the 5 chords that follow the bass. You can always follow the bass line. Funk it out!!
