Watch the Funky Now online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Soul Jazz Licks You MUST Know
Funky Now is another Grant Green inspired idea that is played here over a straight feel on a F7#9 chord. It uses the minor pentatonic scale and blues scale together. There is some repetition that builds tension in the middle of the lick. The resolution uses another double stop to add that bluesy flavor to the line.
