Watch the City Strut online guitar lesson by Jon Finn from 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks You MUST Know

Note that this lick uses a "swing 16ths" feel, creating a funkier, nastier feel.

Throughout the lick, you mostly play a C minor pentatonic scale while adding the characteristic note of C Dorian (which is the note A, the natural 6th degree) when appropriate. It ends with an arpeggio on the F9 chord. Check the notation and tablature to get the finer details. Practice with the backing track, then invent your own version of this lick!
