The rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic principles in funk horn parts are a wonderful source of information for guitarists. Not only will they enhance your rhythm guitar playing, but you'll be able to utilize them in music production as well as in your soloing. This course is designed to take information that many guitarists already possess - the minor pentatonic scale and various modes - and apply it over 4 different bass/drum tracks. You'll learn how to visualize information along the string axis as well as in position and we'll explore various technical approaches to achieve hornlike articulation.
We'll begin with single note horn parts, octaves, double stops, and finally will move into 3 and 4 part diatonic triads out of various modes. Most importantly, you'll be encouraged to think as an arranger, which will help you create parts that leave space and are effective in enhancing the musical landscape of whatever style you're playing.
