Rhythm Guitar: R & B "Soul-Ballad" Style Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: One of my favorite styles of music is R & B. I have always been fascinated with R & B Rhythm Guitar and how songs by the famous artists have a touch of jazz, funk and even other kinds of rhythm guitar styles. My question for you is directed more at the slow R & B numbers. For example; the song: "I've Been Loving You Too Long" by Otis Redding... What kind of approach is the guitarist in a song like this using, and how can I make guitar parts something like that! Thanks for all of your YouTube lessons! Chester -- Melbourne, Australia Whether it's the slow jam style of R & B or funky or even jazz influenced R & B - this style is generally recognized as having a footing in gospel music. Gospel's sparse instrumentation - especially with the slow jam approach, really lends itself well to this sort of sweet laid-back type of guitar playing.
