Mike will show you the single clean electric guitar part in this tune that plays some funky riffs and chord stabs. The tune starts out with the guitar playing a bouncy, funky single note line in the lower register, while the arrangement follows a typical 12 bar blues form. In later verses, the guitar switches to playing staccato chord stabs locked in with the groove.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about funky single note riffs, 7th and 9th chords, and syncopated strumming. We are in the key of Ab major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 128 BPM.
