Below is the lesson for “Funk Jam” by Rock Class 101.
This song teaches you two hallmarks of funk playing: syncopated strum patterns and funky riffs. I’ve always been a big fan of this genre. Firstly, because it sounds so cool! But secondly, because the songs serve as an excellent study for developing groove.
This style of playing is all about being locked into the groove. Rather that’s playing in the pocket with the bass and drums or being locked in time with the click. Therefore, as you jump into this lesson, make sure that timing is at the forefront of your attention.
