Announcement: GuitarControl.com releases âRhythm Guitar Lesson on Funk Chords - Learn to Play Funk Rhythms on Guitarâ
(PRWEB) November 04, 2014
âI want to show you a couple of Funk chords you can use,â says Johnson. The first chord Claude teaches is the Nine Chord and he refers too as the âJames Brown chordâ. Claude demonstrates how to perform it as follows; 6th fret of the 4th string with first finger and bar 3rd finger across the 7th fret of the first three strings. âThis chord is often slid into from a half step below,â says Johnson. Claude continues by playing variations of this voicing such as the m7b5 (minor seven flat five) and the m6 (minor sixth). âYou can also just use normal seventh chords,â says Johnson. Claude continues by performing a variety of other voicingâs that are great for Funk and recommends experimenting on your own with other chord voicingâs. Guitar TABâs are available for this easy funk rhythm guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
Funk guitar is very rhythm oriented and often in the background. The fretting hand usually does very simple chords, but is released immediately after it is strummed to âmuteâ the sound since chords are seldom supposed to ring out in funk. Long durations of a song may be a single chord played repeatedly. Funk is all about locking into the âgrooveâ with the drummer.
