Funk Basics - Guitar 2 (part 1 slow)

Animated Funk Basics - Guitar 2 (part 1 slow) tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This ActionTab is from the Jamzone article called Funk Basics - Guitar 2 where we look at layering funk style guitars together to learn some fundamental funk techniques. Go there to learn more about it!

This first part of Guitar 2 involves picking out a simple C minor arpeggio.

The notes are: G C Eb G C Eb C (repeat 4 times)

The arpeggio may seem a little strange out on its own like this, but remember we have a 3rd and final layer to add. This arpeggio will set that 3rd guitar up nicely. Remember this is the slowed version, don't forget to work on the speed when playing along with the main ActionTab.

Once you can play this arpeggio it's time to move onto the second part, for pure funkism. That is where the main focus of this article is centred. So pick quickly and move onto the second part!!
