We have seen how in the previous ‘Funk Tips’ video we can build a simple line and make it Funky…here I show example using muted notes and ghost notes. Simple but effective, and it’s all about the feel, so listening to the masters is a must.
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.
