Watch the THE Funk Lick online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Kicking things off is a must-know motif heard within countless funk moments throughout recorded history (and not just on guitar), making this truly one of THE funk licks. The lick resides within a condensed 6-bar I-IV-V in the key of Dm set to a sweet groove. While getting down with lick #1 be mindful of the many prerequisite techniques that will reappear throughout ' 50 Funk Licks You Must Know' including string bending (with a special attention paid to the 1st finger bending at hand), staccato phrasing, and grace note slides. What's more, the lick is played on two different string sets (3rd-2nd, 2nd-1st) to inspire you to shift every lick you learn around the neck for maximum flexibilty in your overall lick delivery, no matter what the style.
