Funk fusion is a hybrid of many different styles. This track will enable us to be creative because of the two different sections. Section A is a tower of power driving sixteenth note funk feel over a static E9 chord. Section B is very open over an A blues, A minor 7, A mixolydian, etc., etc. You will really be able to stretch out on this lesson.
