Watch the Quirky Time online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know

"Quirky Time" brings forth the first of many shout-outs to classic moments in the funk canon with a lick from the often overlooked Freddie Stone of Sly & the Family Stone. Chasing the melodic vibe laid down in the Sly & the Family Stone classic, "In Time", this catchy, yet quirky lick aptly serves as a tantalizing repetitive idea played over a vi-V-I progression in F. Right out the gates "Quirky Time" thrusts a Dorian tonailty (the go-to minor mode for groove based styles, especially the funk) into your ears with a superimposed Bdim arpeggio played over a Dm7 chord. Combined with clever line construction and a smartly placed 9th (G) in the form of a 12th fret natural harmonic serving as the concluding note over the final F and Fsus2 chords, "Quirky Time" is pretty quintessential.
