Hello GMC and welcome to my new lesson! In this one we are going to check out some modern funk lead techniques.
When we say funk, we usually mean "rhythm". This is mainly because guitar has percussive role within the style, so that is what makes it distinct. But when we find ourselves in a situation where the band plays some modern funk backing, and you have to pull out some licks on top of it, then some questions may arise. For example, you might ask yourself how to play, or what notes to use. This lesson will help clarify some of those mysteries.
The lesson uses E dominant style wamp across the backing, and beebop, mixolydian, minor, dorian, minor pentatonic, blues scale notes. All these scales have lots of notes in common, so you can use that as your advantage to create chromatic passages that will sound very cool.
Within the traditional way of playing funk (as saxophone player would play solo for example), we, as guitar players, will incorporate modern guitar playing techniques, like sequencing, 16th & 16th triplet note passages, aggressive bends, and woila - there we have something that will definitely sound appropriate over modern funky backing.
Have fun with the lesson! :)
