How to Play Funk Like A Boss
Adrian Rogowski (Brother & Brother‘s guitarist) is a funk boss, no doubt about it. Judging by the response he’s received from this month’s funk composition competition on Guitar Forum SA, where he submitted his latest self-produced track called ‘Turn it Around‘.
Last year the two of us worked on a one minute reggae skit which received good reviews from members of the online community, during the month of October we did the same – just with funk this time.
Adrian did all the production including the guitars, programming and mixing/mastering while I borrowed my voice and bass skills to the track.
I have to say that giving yourself a musical goal and a deadline is a rewarding exercise, because I often get a bright idea but because the creativity strikes at any given moment for no apparent readon – I find myself not having the follow through to finish all the ideas I have.
What we were going for with this track was mix a bit of James Brown with Jamiroquai and a lot of Bootsy Collins.
Well done Adi!
