In this exercice the funky rhythm 5 - 8 is played by the guitar and can be heard in solo mode by clicking on the graphic notation. In the video the whole thing is presented as an arrangement with rhythm guitar, bass, drums and organ.
The dominant chords | A7 | D9 | are used as a typical progression for funk and disco. This chord sequence is played in all possible inversions and positions, which is not an easy, but very rewarding challenge.
The funk rhythm guitar exercise is included in the Guitar Lovers Studies PDF which features high graphic resolution for printing and integrated sound.
