Watch the What Lady? online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
How many licks does it take before the pentatonic scale is king no more? By the looks of recorded history, there may be need for an integer beyond infinity because they just keep coming. In 1973, Ernie Isley dropped a pentatonic phaser laden hook at the beginning of "That Lady" (first heard on the 3 + 3 album) that was so memorable a severe amnesia patient would look at you funny if you couldn't name this tune just from hearing the hyper-vibrato'd bend on the downbeat. Rooted in Cm minor pentatonic and played over a standard i-iv vamp, this lick opens the floodgates to the gaggle of root position minor pent licks that await your fingers in '50 Funk Licks You Must Know'. Get ready!
