In this lesson we'll talk about smooth jazz rhythm guitar. This rhythm style is a light approach to playing a form of jazz rhythm guitar that combines the sixteenth-note grooves of funk with the feel and the harmonies of jazz. Plus, smooth jazz rhythm will also often include a sound and meter that is more associated to the style of soul/R&B music.
This lesson will make a study of how players can get started with a few simple smooth jazz guitar grooves, and then, the lesson will move on to experiment with adding in more funk-style sound.
We'll also study a mixed rhythm guitar concept that combines chords along with single-note lines to further promote the techniques and feel of the soul/R&B style. Enjoy!
