Funky Blues Soloing 1


When most beginner piano students sit down at the piano, their main concern is usually limited to “play the right notes.” And while notes are certainly important, intermediate and advanced students eventually turn a corner and come to understand that rhythms are just as essential—some would say even more essential—than notes. After all, what good are “the right notes” if you don’t play the notes right? In today’s Quick Tip, you’ll learn how to groove “in the pocket” like a drummer as you play a funk piano solo reminiscent of Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock or Richard Tee. You’ll learn cool funk piano skills like:
