Learning Funk Piano I

Long time, no post … hope to change that from now on!

When it comes to funk and its realization on the piano, I’m pretty much of a rookie. Good thing that there are helpful and capable musicians out there who take the time to create comprehensive tutorials meticulously dissecting the building blocks of a funky groove. Jonathon Wilson at GrooveWindow is the man I’m talking about: He created a great resource for aspiring funk pianists on the web and even provides backing tracks, MIDI files and sheet music for his various grooves and licks that he discusses on the site.

Here’s a quick rendition of his — I believe — first funk groove that I used to test out the newest addition to my ever growing home recording studio, the Nord Clavia Electro 4 HP. Check out the detailed video tutorial series!
