In this lesson, we will teach you how to play two classic funk-party Michael Jackson tunes – “Shake Your Body Down to the Ground” and “The Way You Make Me Feel.” Students will learn how to play these great keyboard-centric grooves and will learn the finer points of funk rhythm-reading and counting (which draws heavily on 16th-note rhythms). You will learn the importance of transposition and will show you how to think about the chords in a way that makes transposition much easier to practice. In addition, you’ll get a total of 4 jam tracks!
