Watch the Pent-Up Funk online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Lick #49 “Pent-Up Funk is a funky little riff that combines both A Major and A minor pentatonic. You’ll hear parts/licks like this being played in tunes from 80’s funk master’s like Cameo, The Gap Band, Prince, Rick James and many others. This lick has a broken 16th note feel which is common in the genre. Try to lay back into the pocket and feel the groove.
