Chapter 5: Seventies-era Funk – Staccato Articulation, 16th Notes and Dead-note Rakes
Moving on to Seventies-era funk bass styles, in this lesson Matt offers some great examples of how great players like Bernard Edwards and jazz-fusion legend Jaco Pastorius would construct exciting bass lines and rhythmically compelling grooves using crisply articulated 16th-note rhythms, repeated notes and percussive, fret-hand-muted “dead” notes, all played in conjunction with pick-hand “rakes,” wherein a finger is dragged upward across two adjacent strings in a single stroke.
