Thank you for stopping by. I hope you get a chance to come out to one of my clinics. Over the years I’ve learned many things. One of those things was HOW TO KEEP A GIG and HOW TO PLAY A FUNKY GROOVE. Hopefully, in 2 hours, I can teach you some major fundamentals on how to do just that.


The clinic is going to focus on the styles of Soul, R&B, Hip Hip, Funk and Pop. I will explain what you should listen for and how to apply the right things in the right places.

Start at 2:20

Nile Rodgers and Chic LIVE in Vancouver, Canada.

You’re seeing the show from my chair on Facebook Live.
