Any given funk tune relies on the rhythm chops of their guitar player – it’s their job to lock in with the drummer and bass player to drive the tune as well as keep the groove interesting and fresh. Mark Tuinstra will teach you how to do exactly that with his new TrueFire course, Funk Rhythm Guitar Guidebook. In these lessons taken from the course, he’ll take you through three performance studies that highlight successful funk rhythm playing with a band. Let’s get funky!
