Watch the Give-it-Up-Gate online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
In this final lick we dive into the recurring theme of syncopation one last time at superhero proportions, while checking out one last James Brown mashup. Combining snippets from "Give It Up or Turnit Loose" and "You Can't Have Watergate Just Gimme Some Bucks and I'll Be Straight", you have the ultimate offbeat 16th note challenge. Its best to lock in with the first four bars, as it is those riffs that are minced into what you have to tackle in bars 5-8. All the work with the offbeat 16th within the previous 49 licks comes to a head right here, right now. Makes us all proud funkateer and own this one!
