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.
”In this Neo Soul Guitar Guidebook, I'd like to share some ideas, concepts, techniques, and grooves that I use when playing guitar in Neo Soul, Hip Hop, R&B, and the modern jazz styles of today. We'll dig into fresh timing approaches, soul phrasing, and I'll show you the typical chords that are used in these styles and various ways to voice them. We'll explore various fingerstyle techniques that you can use to spice up your guitar playing. We'll also talk about guitar sampling, where you approach live guitar playing the same way a hip-hop producer would use audio software or sampling equipment.”
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!
