Playing Funk Guitar...Chucking

Chucking is a technique that funk guitarist use.What you do is,with your left hand,lay it across all or most of the strings and strum while only sounding out the note(s) you are fretting or playing(make sure you are not muting the note(s)you are fretting!).This gives you a fatter sound than say,picking the one string for that one note.And remember to be patient and not to get frustrated at first!And,go out and grab,or download, some old 70's and 80's funk tunes,you will hear this technique being used all over the place.
