Lesson notes

Funk, thy name is James Brown. The ultimate funk and soul singer, James Brown is a legend, as are the musicians that played with him.

Brown had one of the tightest rhythm sections around; so much so that their ground-breaking grooves and rhythms are still being emulated today. This song, released as a single in 1965 has been making people dance ever since. A very horn-heavy blues progression with a tight and compact rhythm section makes this a fantastic song to practice not just blues but your feel and timing as well.

With this lesson, you’ll be privy to all the rhythmic varieties and grooves that this song has to offer. In addition to improving your rhythm and feel, you’ll get all the riffs and sliding chord hits that make up the guitar mastery on this James Brown hit!
