ExamplE4 Min7 chords in a funky Groove
Use 16th-note alternate strumming for funk rhythm guitar. This will help you to play tightly in the groove like Al McKay or Nile Rodgers. In this example you will find it goes ‘down-up-down-up-down-down’ in bars 1, 2 and 3. Bar 4 goes ‘down-up-up-up-up’. Use a bright neck pickup or ‘in-between’ sound when you play this one, add a bit of compression and phasing if you have them.
