These single-note scale riffs are definitely a big part of playing funk guitar, and they can also integrate quite nicely against the performance of those classic small funky chord shots played in and around all kinds of funk riff ideas.
In this lesson, we'll be looking at how to plan these funky single-string riffs on the guitar fingerboard. And how some of the guitar techniques involved with performing them will play a role with getting the right type of sound for the style of funk. Plus, we'll look at how you can pre-set the pick-ups of your guitar to get a good quality tone for performing in this style of music. Enjoy the lesson!
