Watch the Stank Face online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Growing up in the south, whenever my friends and I heard something super funky we always gave each other what we referred to as the “stank face.” If the music gave you the “stank face” then you knew it was good! Lick #10 “Stank Face” gives me that look. This one is based in position IV of A minor pentatonic and it’s a riff based funk lick. If you’re new to funk pay close attention to the 16th note subdivisions and really try to lock into the groove!
