Great Musical Feel is Developed Through Great Musical Practice

Funk is a music based on two things: rhythm and feel.

Long periods of static chord vamps come alive by the use of subtle and varied musical techniques, and these techniques must be built on a foundation of rock-solid rhythmic control.

To build the rhythmic skills needed to play tight funk guitar (or indeed, any music), guitarists must learn to accurately perform almost any rhythm on the guitar before learning how to sit tightly in the groove of the song.

Funk Guitar Mastery Develops Perfect Rhythm from the Ground Up

Part 1

The first half of Funk Guitar Mastery focuses on developing tight, accurate rhythm skills from first principles.

For guitarists, funk is a music that is all about playing accurate and groovy 1/16th notes. Every possible pattern of 1/16th notes is addressed and then combined into original and authentic funk guitar parts.

Essential skills such as Scratches, Rests, Triplets and Chord Stabs are also introduced.

Part 2

The second half of Funk Guitar Mastery introduces the vital elements of Groove, Chord Embellishments (such as Adding Slides and Melody Notes), Chord Progressions, Riff-based Ideas and Improvisation.

Both halves combine seamlessly to develop creative, musical and interesting funk guitar parts. Throughout, the emphasis is on listening to, and locking in with the bass and drums to help you form a tight, functional, grooving rhythm section.

Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • After several years of playing the guitar I realized that going back to basics was a necessity. I kinda jumped right into learning other people's songs and never really mastered the basics. So when I saw how this book was laid out with all the rhythmic exercises, it appealed to me. I bought this book for the exercises and going through it has greatly improved my playing. The exercises are laid out logically, but simple enough in structure that a raw beginner can play them as well. If you want to get a better grasp of basics and just plain have some fun, then get this book.
  • This is the 6th book I've purchased by Joseph Alexander and it didn't disappoint. I've never before been able to find a great funk guitar theory book. Since the Red Hot Chili Peppers are my favorite band, I learned the songs but never had a real good understanding of the theory behind the Funk guitar fretboard until now. Thank you!
  • This book clearly and concisely covers a topic I was never able to get under my fingers, literally! It begins with the very basic rhythm structure and works its way up to the more advanced types used in real-world funk playing. If you can't follow the figures, the audio tracks provided do the trick. All in all, I highly recommend this and any of Joseph's books as they truly deliver as promised.
