Funky Blues - Intro

Steve Hubbard 107 lessons

Hey guys!

This tutorial will focus on a beginner 'Funky Blues' riff, and will also include a modified example, as well as a short lead run!

As mentioned in the above video, some techniques that may stand out are:

Staccato:   Characterized by performance in which the notes are abruptly disconnected.

Inflection:    A deviation from pitch. (In this musical situation, it is more importantly a change in pitch, in small increments.)

In the first two examples, we will be following the chords of a somewhat typical blues chord progression.

Move on to the first video, and lets get started!
