Funk guitar is one influence that can be found over and over again in my playing, whether I’m writing prog riffs, noodling around with clean tones, or anything in between. It’s so versatile and filled with many little techniques that will add flair to your playing in any genre.
This lesson will help you break out of your current mindset to come up with new ideas and note combinations as well as improve your timing and sync between your picking and fretting hands – I even include a full tone overview detailing exactly how I dial in my funk tones!
Octaves have always been a big part of my playing but the way I’ve used them has changed drastically over the years.
In this lesson I’m going to teach you all of my favourite octave techniques, how you can apply them to your own playing and some great ways to improve your hand strength when using them.
