I bought this the Playing Funky Rhythm Guitar book/CD set around a year ago. I listened to the CD and read through it. I found a couple of exercises that I liked but I was already to overwhelmed learning Jazz to start my Funk journey. The other day, I pulled out it out again and listened intently to the CD. Out of around 64 exercise tracks, half of them got my attention.

The book is organized into sections according to meter, such as Chapter 2, which has quarter note patterns and eight total. The patterns are played to one of several play along tracks. The ones that utilized track 57 became my favorite. A couple of the patterns sounded great on their own, others sounded really nice when you mixed them in with others while playing along with the play-along track. By the way, I would have preferred to have the book organized by play-along track. That is, have each chapter devoted to just the patterns designed to be played with it. But that is just my preference, it may work better as is for most. I just did not like doing the legwork of searching each chapter for patterns that corresponded to play-alongs 56 and 57, and then having to organize them accordingly.

When it was all said and done, however, I learned a lot about playing that funky, scratching, rhythm guitar. It is funny how the subtle technique of when to scratch and when to float can have such an overall profound effect on the rhythm line in keeping listener interest. And that is what this book helped impress upon me. I never realized how many of my favorite songs had such simple single-note muted lines and chord slides, yet were able to convey such musicality.

Great book. I especially loved the play-along track that allowed me to have extended practice. I am going to record it on my recording device and play it in a loop. It should provide many hours of entertainment for me.

As a sidenote, I also have Funk Guitar by Ross Bolton that I recommend. Both of these books allow you to combine and exploit your own creativity and create hours of great Funk rhythm lines.

CAVEAT: There are some mistakes in the book. Track 23's notation on page 15 did not match the recorded guitar track, and the tab notation itself show a different rhythm than the standard notation line on the top. Also, I think some of the pick directional markers were inaccurate on a couple of songs, other than that, it was pretty darn accurate.

Playing along with this book changed my guitar-playing life. It transformed me in about 3 months from someone who struggled with barre chords into the rhythm guitarist for a gigging soul/rock combo.

I have dozens of guitar instruction books gathering dust in my library but I play through this one at least once a week. It is a physical, not an intellectual, approach to guitar that lets you "zone out" and get in the pocket. It's more like learning dance steps or karate moves than memorizing musical concepts and ideas. "Wax on, wax off."

If you rip the CD to a playlist and put the backing tracks in sequence after the example tracks, you will have a two-hour, forty minute rhythm guitar workout. Stick to the exercises as written first, then see if you can come up with variations based in what you learn. The 3-minute bass and drum tracks are groovy enough to hold your interest while you play along. If you have a more advanced friend who wants to work on leads, you can jam out for hours on these exercises and build a rapport.

I really wish there was a Volume 2, because I am still searching for a way to build naturally from what I learned in this, my favorite guitar book. I can't recommend it enough.

Don't let the title fool you into thinking this is a specialty book for funk or even for just rhythm. There is an emphasis on funk, but the examples/exercises are excellent technique builders across genres. Also, since the rhythms are often complex, they can be judiciously incorporated into solos (a la Hendrix). This book would be frustrating for most beginners, but for anyone who wants to break out of basic 4/4 strumming and make their rhythm playing count (sorry for the pun), this will be a great investment.

I've been learning to play guitar over the last two years--still have a ways to go before I consider myself competent, but it's starting to come together for me. I got this book because of the 16th-note exercises and after a couple of weeks, I'm already feeling a big difference in my rhythm guitar abilities. I love the fact that there are so many patterns for 16th-notes that force me out of the 1-2 patterns I already knew. Also triplet rhythm patterns, for even more variety. And by ripping the CD and loading into the Amazing Slow-Downer app on my phone, I can figure each out, then build up to speed. Good chord variations as well on 7th and 9th chords, and backing tracks to practice with. Lots to love here. One thing to note--I've had to thicken some of the lines for scratches, since the print is so faint, it's sometimes hard to see when to hit the chord and when to hit the scratch. All in all, though, I'm a big fan of this book/cd.

This is the 3rd book I have purchased from Chris Hunt, and I would rank it 2nd just behind the Blues By the Bar book which is one of my all time favorites. Let's face it, we spend most of our time playing rhythm guitar. I was tired of playing the same old strum patterns when I purchased this book and in just a few short weeks, I have expanded my strum vocabulary. Simple concepts, chord diagrams and the pattern spelled out is all you need. The audio CD helps you hear what is being played and how it should sound.

For the money, it is an excellent book to go with all of your "licks" books.

This book has been fantastic for helping me learn the basics of rhythm guitar. The CD is a huge help in mastering the exercises. I'd definitely recommend this book.

the other reviews were right great teacher
Good rhythms, interesting backing tracks- starts out fairly accessible and gets into some tough and highly syncopated ideas. Good for a player in their first 2 years.
