Dion Rushe

Master 16th notes

This course begins with a detailed exploration of Cory Wong's distinctive right-hand technique. Dion guides you in developing impressive 16th-note strumming patterns in Cory's style. As your strumming hand adapts to the Wong groove, the focus shifts to the fretting hand, where you'll learn to infuse Cory Wong's magic into single-note melody lines, transforming them into rhythmic elements. Unit 3 introduces five remarkable tricks from Cory Wong's repertoire, enhancing your funk playing skills. In the final unit, Dion combines everything, presenting a challenging piece that incorporates 16th note strumming, diverse chords, key changes, and pentatonic intervals. Lots to work on to help you tackle any of Cory's songs!
