Watch the S.S. Mellowship online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Taking one last look into the near-perfect funk of John Frusciante, we check out a very cool pinch picking technique the ever-esoteric one utilized in "Mellowship Slinky in B Major" from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. This lick is all over that technique, which provides tremendous snap for supreme attack. Other factors that contribute to these four bars of awesome are the 1/8 note breath taken at the downbeat of bars 1 and 3, the slur of the 3rd in the same bars that stretch into the even numbered bars, and the interplay with the interlocking bass line.
