TUTORiAL | 4.61 GB
Today’s modern funk grooves encompass rhythms from the past, present, and future. Bass players now need to be able to incorporate beats, textures, and the time and feels of hip-hop, electronic music, and indie rock with the classic grooves of the ’60s, ‘70s, and ’80s.
"Even though I play a wide variety of music ranging from jazz fusion to progressive metal, underneath it all, my approach to bass and my rhythmic concept is heavily rooted within the realm of funk. I’m excited to share many of my go-to approaches with you here in this course.
In this course, we’ll play through 10 modern funk bass studies to help you develop modern approaches and techniques including fingerstyle grooves, utilizing space and syncopation, groove placement, extended muted thumb technique, and even some slapping technique.
I’ve organized the course into three sections. In the first section, we’ll focus on fingerstyle funk approaches with four modern funk bass studies. In the second section, we’ll take a look at how to use more space in your grooves as we explore three more studies. And finally, in the third section, we’ll dig in to thumb oriented funk approaches and play our final three grooves."
Steve will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
