. And in this series, we're going to learn how to play an advanced funk groove on the piano. We're going to learn specific, written out examples of this particular groove. I, myself, personally learn best by seeing exactly how somebody plays a particular pattern. The way chords are voiced. The way fingers are used. Exact notational patterns which I can then use to take and extrapolate and turn into my own thing. So we're going to learn this particular funk groove. We're going to learn the bass line. We're going to learn right hand comping patterns, breaks. Right hand solo patterns. Ways of varying the groove and changing the riff around to make it a little more aggressive. Learn all those things. But to get started, we're going to just do a nice, simple intro lick that lets us get in and out of the tune. So, without further ado, let's get started on that.
