Watch the Gots Ta Be... online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues
When it comes to the guitar, there is no funkier key than E. Make use of that open 6th string whenever you can. This example is just a good straight up funk lick that can be used for rhythm or lead playing. Like in previous examples, attitude is key. Do not, I repeat do not play this idea timidly. You must take a big ol' swing at it and get that low E ringing. Good muting technique is important too. We'll talk about that in this video and througout the course.
