Groove Concept for Funk Guitar Performance
Offered - Fall, Spring
Course number - ILGT-253
This lab will break down all aspects of funk guitar styles. Students will familiarize themselves with salient concepts including phrasing, time, rhythm playing, "playing the pocket," harmonics possibilities, and understanding the many roles that the guitar can play in funk settings. Funk is a dialect in the musical language. As is the case with any language, students will focus on understanding and communicating in this dialect, listening to pronunciation and how sentences are phrased, and building a strong vocabulary.
