Watch the Off By a Pound online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know

You can never have enough short, cleverly constructed licks at your disposal when playing funk music, and that's what this next lick is all about. Debuting the mighty sounds of the venerable funk machine known as Funkadelic to 50 Funks Licks You Must Know, this next lick hacks into a tune called "Better by the Pound". This fleeting, uber-cool snippet in Em is seasoned with an octaver to meet the interstellar funk standards created by Funkadelic leader, George Clinton and his sonic cohort, keyboardist Bernie Worrell. Between the staccato phrasing, the exaggerated vibrato, and exiting gliss that has your fret hand shooting towards the headstock, this lick is a bonified must know. In regards to the staccato factor, you're going to check out a fret hand technique I call "bounce fretting" that furthers the funk agenda.

By the way, if you're wondering who to thank for this ditty, your guess is as good as mine, as more often than not Funkadelic jams feature a pair of guitaristic funkateers. In this case they are the dynamic duo of Michael Hampton and Gary Shider.
