The Pioneers of Funk Music

The Pioneers of Funk Music

funk music was once the coolest thing around.   Right now the closest thing we have hitting it high in the charts is stuff like “Get lucky”.  The following tracks spear headed the Funk genre, hope you enjoy!

The Meters

Widely regarded as one of the most important early funk bands, they formed in 1967 by keyboard player Art Neville in the USA.  Familiar hitsinclude “City Strut”and “ease back”.

 

And the track.to check out –

“Look Ka Py Py – The Meters

 

 

There are currently two forms of the Meters inexistence.  One called The Funky Meters led by Art Neville and one called The original Meters lead by Leo Nocentelli.

The Isley Brothers

With a history spanning 5 decades these guys hold the record for the longest running charting band.  Pioneers in their own right, they released “it’s your thing” which topped the R n B charts in 1969.

Checkoutt the song on the link Below-

 

Kool and the gang

Formed in 1964 by bassist Robert Kool Bell.

The banoriginally started as a Jazz quartet but by the end of the decade had changed their name.and musical direction.  Throughout the 70’s the band achieved worldwide recognition for their slick, funky grooves!  They still record and tour to this day.

Kind of Funky – Kool and the Gang

Knowing the notes on your fretboard

Knowing the notes on your fretboard

 

 

Today we will look a little into the notes of your fretboard.

Whether you just want to strum a few open chords on the acoustic and learn your favorite songs it still strongly helps your ability as a musician if you know your notes on the fretboard.

By knowing your notes you can then transfer licks, riffs and ideas effortlessly into other keys.  You can improvise a lot easier.  You will find it easier to express yourself and be less limited as a musician.

Task number 1

Learn the notes on the Low E string –  (TODAY WE WILL JUST BE USING SHARPS)

Below are the fret numbers followed by the note name below it.

Fret No 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
6thString E F F# G G# A A# B C C# D D# E

a GOOD TIP IS TO USE THE FRETS WITH A DOT ON THEM OR A MARKING (usually frets 3, 5, 7 and 9) to help you remember the notes of G – A – B – C#

more good news- there are two e strings so now you can tick of knowing the notes on the high e string and the low e string.

TASK NUMBER 2

Learn the A string notes –

Fret No 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
5th String A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G# A

 

Task number 3

Learn notes via the octave shape

 

London guitar school

Learning notes this way is valuable and quick.

What we do is take a power chord (if unfamiliar look back through past blogs to see a power chord) and now we see that the note on the E string and D string is the same note.

If we go to fret 3 which is G right?!  Then play a power chord and the note on the 4th string is also a G.  We can do this and use this shape all along the Low E string and the A string.

What we have learned is also called an octave.  The same note higher up.

 

In closing

 

With time you will learn the notes whether you realize it or not.  They’ll just start to creep into your mind and brain.

 

 

 

Chord Construction and Triads lesson 1

Chord Construction

Today lets take a look at how chords are constructed.

 

The smallest most basic chord is called a triad and there are four types of triads.  

What’s a Triad?

A triad is a chord constructed with 3 notes. When in root position (the root note is on the bottom) each note is a third away from the last.  Triads are a basic chord structure and the basis of how other types of chords are constructed. There are four types of triads:

  • Major
  • Minor
  • Augmented
  • Diminished

Major Triads:

Hopefully you’ve read about major scales already; if not go check them out, triads will make much more sense. To create a major triad simply stack the 1st, 3rd, and 5th notes of a major scale on top of each other.

Let’s take the G major scale: G – A – B – C – D – E – F#

Take the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees out: G – A – B – C – – E – F#

The G major triad would be G – B – D.

Minor Triad

Minor triads are constructed in the same fashion as major triads, only based off the Natural minor scale. Take the 1st, 3rd, and 5th notes of the scale and you end up with the minor triad.

Lets take the G natural minor scale – G – A – Bb – C – D – Eb – F

So the G minor triad would be G -Bb – D

Augmented Triads

Augmented triads have a cool sound, very mysterious. An augmented triad is a major third on top of another major third. So basically, you can take a major triad and raise the 5th note by a half step to get the augmented version (since a major triad is a major third on the bottom and a minor third on the top). The augmented triad has lots of uses and can resolve in many ways. By ‘resolve’, I mean it naturally has the tendency to lead into another chord.

G augmented triad is – G – B – (raised 5th) D#

Diminished Triads:

A diminished triad has a dissonant sound to it. It’s built using two minor thirds.

G diminished triad – G – Bb – Db

Nest week harmonising scales!

Understanding the scale (with charts and exercises)

What is a  scale?

A scale is a series of notes within an octave.

What is the Major scale?

The Major (or Ionian) scale uses the following formula –

Whole step – whole step -half step – whole step – whole step – whole step – half step.

if you play on Just the low E string a whole step is equal to two frets (2 semitones) and a half step is equal to one fret. (1 semitone)

Below are the notes for the C major scale – see if you can understand the method above by playing the notes of the c major scale.

1.C

2.D

3.E

4.F

5.G

6.A

7.B

Finish on C

The notes are numbered 1- 7 .

 

 

Now here is the Major Scale in Every Key

C = C – D – E – F – G – A – B – C
D = D – E – F# – G – A – B – C# – D
E = E – F# – G# – A – B – C# – D# – E
F = F – G – A – Bb – C – D – E – F
G = G – A – B – C – D – E – F# – G
A = A – B – C# – D – E – F# – G# – A
B = B – C# – D# – E – F# – G# – A# – B
C# = C# – D# – E# (=F) – F# – G# – A# – B# (=C) – C#
Db = Db – Eb – F – Gb – Ab – Bb – C – Db
Eb = Eb – F – G – Ab – Bb – C – D -Eb
F# = F# – G# – A# – B – C# – D# – E# (=F) – F#
Gb = Gb – Ab – Bb – Cb (=B) – Db – Eb – F – Gb
Ab = Ab – Bb – C – Db – Eb – F – G – Ab
Bb = Bb – C – D – Eb – F – G – A – Bb

Look at the chart attached for The G major scale and learn position 1 today and in lesson 2 we will go into more depth.

See attached the G major scale PDF –

Keep practising and in no time you will be able to do loads with this scale alone in one position

Quick Tips for beginner Ukulele players

Quick Tips for  beginner Ukulele players

The Ukulele is back and it’s popular

Ukulele lessons london

Lets have a look at some tips we can give you here at The London Guitar School.

Make sure your ukulele is in good condition

Its very common for me to turn up at a students house ready to em….rock and the students is ukulele has strings missing or holes or….well the less said the better.  A decent ukulele can be bought for £50.  Thats nothing for an instrument as fun as this one.

Get used to tuning

Simple but effective, keep that instrument in tune for your lovely singing!!

Learn to Hold your Ukulele

This may sound stupid but it can help you a lot in the future! Take a few minutes and try some positions either sitting and standing. Don’t hold it to tight and have a nice relaxed body!  Eventually you should be able to walk and play,cool huh?

Be patient

Practice often, even for short periods of time and you will progress.  But don’t worry if it takes time!

Get a FANTASTIC teacher

Oh I know some good teachers. These guys at www.londonguitarschool.co.uk

Watch videos on Youtube

A great we us teachers motivate ourselves and refresh ourselves is by watching videos on youtube. We regularly send our students there too.  It’s fun and easy to too as everyone has a laptop these days.  Just don’t get addicted!

Perform in front of people

The more you do this the more you will geo in confidence and you will also get hooked to performing!

Learn to strum effectively

At the start you’ll probably only be doing simple up and down, up and down, up and down. But after a while you can try to add some slapping and palm muting to really get that chunky, funky and groovy feeling.  There are a few ways to strum including with picks, the thumb and fingers.  By checking our blog page and youtube page we will soon be putting up tutorial videos on strumming the ukulele

 

AND FINALLY HAVE FUN!!!!!!

This is my favourite magazine currently.  It caters for more competent and advanced musicains and always has a load of varied content.  It covers every type of music imaginable from country to dance to shred and you will always be inspired and motivated by at least something in each issue.

Good for anyone wanting some motivation or inspiration for something new

Guitar techniques magazine london guitar school

  • Home.  In-home, private guitar lessons for kids attract busy families that prefer the privacy and convenience of a traveling teacher
  • Studio.  Studio or group lessons often provide cost savings and work well for those that prefer a structured or group setting
  • Starting Age/Duration.  Many guitar lessons for beginners are taken by children ages 5 and up. Two siblings often share a 60 minute lesson, each taking 30 minutes. Single children and children over the age of 10 often take 45 minutes each week to learn guitar and make progress
  • Family Lessons.  Many families take in-home lessons together with the same teacher. With kids and adults, family lessons last between 1.5-2 hours a week and provide an excellent way to set aside that extra quality time busy schedules often sacrifice

5 metal techniques you need to work on

Here at The Guitar School we love all types of music.  With Metal music however there are certain techniques that crop up again and again.  If you learn.the following techniques you are on your way to becoming a metal master!!

1. alternate Picking

Alternate picking is atechnique where you pluck a string up then down continuously.  It is useful for machine gun like fast runs.  A big tip is moving the pick as little as possible thus allowing more srokes in a quicker time.

2.Legato

Legato means to play smoothly.  Legato playing is great for fast runs up and down the neck.  The trick is to pluck less and basically let the left hand produce hammer ons and pull offs to give the sound of notes.

3. Sweep picking

When sweep picking, the guitarist plays single notes on consecutive strings with a ‘sweeping’ motion of the pick, while using the fret hand to produce a specific series of notes that are fast and fluid in sound.

This is essentially a very metal concept.

4. Tapping

Tapping involveshammering down on the fretboard with either the left or right hand to produce note sounds.

In rock and metal music finger tapping is often done with both hands at once or most commonly with the right hand tapping notes high up the fretboard.

5. palm Muting

What Great Metal band ddoesn’t use this at some point?  Essentially the right hand palm rests on the strings (you have to find the sweetshop) to give a specific sound to your notes.

The best acoustic guitar under £200

The best acoustic guitar under £200

Hi guys and girls,

Tomorrow I am going to buy some acoustic guitars for students of mine.

A price range I always get asked about is the popular £100 -£200 range.  Within this range you can actually get some great guitars.  I want to show you a few that are always reliable and you cant go wrong with.

Remember though that there is no perfect guitar and every hand is different so what works for one person wont necessarily work for the other
