Chapter 6: Eighties-era Funk – Going “Electro” and Combining Simple Motifs with Space
In this lesson, Matt demonstrates some cool Eighties “synth-bass”-style funk lines that feature the use of an electronic sub-octave doubling effect, which creates that thick, keyboard-like “electro” bass sound made popular by players like Robert Wilson and others on countless pop R&B recordings. Eighth- and 16th-note syncopations are again featured, along with the use of rests and quick finger slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs, which help emulate the effect of a synth keyboard’s pitch wheel.
