Turn your rhythm section loose on this great "down and dirty" funk chart. A funky riff by trombone, bari sax, bass and "crunchy" guitar sets the energy level for the tune and it's all up hill from there. Solo section opens up for unlimited possibilities; horn battles or aggressive rock guitar, electric piano, and "slappin' & poppin" bass solos. One bluesy minor pentatonic scale to master! Solo section ends with a short or extended drum feature. The cowbell/tambourine player adds just the right spice. Also includes a guitar performance help sheet.
