Watch the Native Eight online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Continuing the exploration into octaves as well as performing my civic funk duties by bringing you sounds from the underground, this lick is all about Jamiroquai and the guitar work of guitarists such as Simon Katz and Gavin Dodds. Led by the perplexing Jay Kay Katz and Dodds, along with other guitarists, they played a pivotal role in the rise of British acid-jazz. Lifted from the intro guitar playing heard in "Emergency on Planet Earth" from their debut album of the same name released in 1993, this lick will have you freight train-ing through a static G octave that beautifully colors the tightly voice-led chords heard flowing underneath. In bar 2 at beat 3, watch for an interval that will play host to many licks coming your way.
