Learn deep funk/R&B guitar! These hands-on exercises, licks, and technical discussions will help you play in the style of Kool and the Gang, Prince, James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Mayfield, Soulive, and other great artists, spanning from old school to contemporary funk/R&B grooves. The CD features demonstration and practice tracks, played by the Boston-based R&B/funk group the Thaddeus Hogarth Band. Guitar tablature, fretboard diagrams, and traditional notation are included. You'll learn how to: play lead lines and build solos; understand and use scales over funk/R&B harmonies; create rhythm-guitar parts that support funk/R&B grooves; bend strings to expand your palette of scales, harmonies, and ornamentation; and much more!
