Unit 1: Funky Blues

In unit 1, our focus is the funky blues! This has a big John Mayer Trio vibe and is all about developing incredible right and left-hand coordination and understanding. We learn how to maintain a consistent 16th note strum whilst only playing single notes on the neck. This gives us that chunky, aggressive, bluesy tone, much like classic SRV! The riff itself continues to develop our understanding of the dominant 7th and 9th chords and how we can use the major and minor pentatonic crossover to great effect!
