Funk Guitar Comping Tips

In this video lesson I show some ideas for funk comping. The video is pretty self explanatory, so I’ll just sommarize by saying

1. try not to use massive chords with 6 notes, less is more.

2. break up bigger chords in smaller parts, double stops are great.

3. leave space for snare and think of your part as a piece of a bigger collage

4. look for 4ths inside chords and scales, those work great.

more tips to come in part 2…coming soon! Stay tuned.
