Going Down Town

In this unit we will work through our first full funk track, learning how the guitar player sits amongst the band in a "James Brown era" style groove. We'll talk you through a more complex strumming pattern, how to use chromatics with your 9th chords to create some cool funky sounds, and how we use the 1, 4 and 5 chords very differently in funk to blues. Check out the first video to get started!
