Funk Riff 1

Post  Smaz on Tue Jun 08, 2010 7:24 am

As the first riff, I just did something quick, to demonstrate what I mean with this section Smile A couple of hammer ons & muted notes.

Let me know how you get on!

Nice riff, Lord Smaz

I think I got it.... I used the slow riff, I'll spoiler the notes I got in the order they appear in 'notes used'

Spoiler:
F, G, A#/Bb, B, G edit: I think the muted notes are just the muted E string during the low G note bit and the muted G string just before it. There might be more but I can't pick them out.

edit: oh man I really love that riff I can't stop playing it!

I should have posted the tab or something in the main post as a spoiler, but I didn't get around to it as I did this before work. I'll do it now!

I suppose the ghost notes don't really have to be played on the strings/the way I did, but I kinda stroke across all strings.

Somehow I was really struggling with the part on the E string, but I think I got it now.

Looking forward for more Riffs to learn! This is real fun.
