This is a lesson on How to play “Get Up Sex Machine” by James Brown. The Godfather of Funk, this is a very cool, simple song. If you are just getting into playing funk it might be a bit challenging for you, so there’s an exercise after the song to help you get into playing funky rhythms. Check it out!
In this video I am showing some of my pedals I’ve been using to get as close to Jimi Hendrix’s sound as possible.
The pedals are: CryBaby by Dunlop – Wah pedal
Fillmore Thunder by Elite Tone – Octave/Fuzz
SuperTube RS54 by Union – OD pedal
Plexi Tone by Carl Martin – OD/Distortion pedal
Vibe Machine by Dry Bell – Uni-Vibe pedal
For the amp I was using Guitar Rig’s preset – Little Jimi’s Wing.
