Incorporating Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop, Fusion and even African elements in their sonic palette, Neo Soul artists have expanded the boundaries of popular Soul music. Bands like The Roots, D'Angelo, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, artists like Maxwell, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and producers like J Dilla, MadLib and DJ Hi-Tek have inspired a fresh and original approach for contemporary, soulful guitar performance. Rory Ronde's Neo Soul Guitar Guidebook guides you through the Neo Soul landscape of fresh original sounds, hip timing, guitar sampling, and mesmerizing grooves. Rory passes on 7 key New Soul guitar concepts and techniques for fingerstyle approaches, embellishing chords, Neo Soul chord voicings, movement within chords, hammers, pulls, double-stops and sequencing. He'll then demonstrate all of these key concepts and techniques across 8 performance studies.
Ronde is a member of several bands including New Cool Collective, Wouter Hamel, LaGarçon* and Les Cooles De Ville. Ronde is also a songwriter and music producer, working under the alias Kofi Anonymous. Ronde has performed his music all over the world and, fortunately for we students of guitar, is also a passionate educator. We are very excited to welcome Rory to the family with his first TrueFire course, the Neo Soul Guitar Guidebook!
Rory's 8 Performance studies cover the range of techniques, feels, and chord progressions that are most common in the Neo Soul genre. For each study, Rory will first demonstrate the performance and then break it down for you emphasizing the key concepts and techniques in play.
All of the key examples and performance studies are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You'll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop and/or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, Rory includes all of the backing tracks for you to work with on your own.
Grab your guitar and let's get our Neo Soul groove on with Rory Ronde!
