Groove is all around us. It’s in the pulse of our heartbeat, the connection between the listener and the music we love across virtually every genre from funk, R&B, and soul to rock, modern country, and pop.

Because of its percussive, rhythmic and melodic qualities, the guitar is central to crafting the perfect groove for any song, in any style. Carl Burnett’s Groove Guitar edition of Take 5 is your fast track to the pocket and groove you’ll want to create for virtually any style you play.

”Curtis Mayfield, Al Mckay, Charles Skip Pitts, Nile Rogers, are just a few examples of great players that originated the ‘groove guitar’ vocabulary that you hear today in contemporary music. In this course, I’ll step you through a ‘groove guitar’ primer where I’ll show you some key techniques, rhythmic approaches, and chordal embellishments. It’s filled with key concepts in playing guitar with the overall conceptual idea of groove and creating music.”

After the primer, Carl will guide you through 5 Groove Guitar performance studies across a variety of musical styles, ranging from basic applications to more sophisticated and challenging approaches.

Carl will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the key examples and performances.

Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tool to sync the tab and notation to the video and can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.

Grab your guitar and let’s groove with Carl Burnett!
