Don't let the title of this study program fool ya -- this is NOT a "funk" course (although funk guitar freaks will indeed flip over this one). Rather, Buono's curriculum of funk guitar lessons is designed for intermediate to advanced players who dig and play any form of "groove-based" music; be it rock, blues, jazz, R&B, and of course funk.
Many of the techniques, rhythmic and percussive concepts
that you will learn how to play in Funk Fission are culled from the combined genius of Jimmy Nolen, Catfish Collins, Wayne Krantz, Dave "Fuze" Fiuczynski, Avi Bortnick and Mick Goodrick. Tweaking tonal textures with motion control, sequenced filters and other effects follow in the footsteps of The Edge, Vernon Reid, Bill Frisell, Nels Cline and Oz Noy. Buono has devoted many years to studying, documenting and assembling this comprehensive one-of-a-kind curriculum. Today's groove-based musical landscape is generously spiced with a wide variety of new techniques, syncopated rhythms and tonal textures. Funk Fission covers the full palette of techniques, grips, moves, voicings and effects required to color your rock, blues and jazz grooves with that distinctive contemporary funkified flavor.
