There’s a real art to playing rhythm guitar. Creating the perfect rhythm part, staying in the pocket with the rhythm section, staying consistent throughout the song, and knowing when you can, and when you cannot improvise parts — this can all be very challenging.
In this performance, we’ll work with a track called “Ice Man”. It’s a medium-tempo funk groove over an A7 chord. Harmonically, there’s a lot that can be done with it – we’ll being taking it in and out with some diminished sounds.
It’s heavily inspired by Albert Collins, hence the name of the song, especially his work bringing the funk into the blues.
