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

Just in case you were jonesing for a pentatonic lick, this next one takes influence from a tune called "Look-Ka Py Py" from the album of the same name. Now who would name a tune THAT? Only The Meters - the undisputed heavyweight champions of down-home pentatonic riffing. Many of those riffs are fueled by legendary funkateer, Leo Nocentelli. With its slippery use of our next spotlighted interval, the 6th, this lick will score high on the you're-never-too-cool-to slide meter. As you watch the video be mindful of the fingering, which allows you to make the slide and get back to the response portion of the of the riff with maximum smoothness intact.
