Watch the A Cold One online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Often times funk guitar needs to be loose, guttural, and raw. If you were to use those adjectives in an ad for a guitarist you'd get a guy like G. Love walking through the door. So that is why we look to G. and a break in a tune called "Cold Beverages" for the lick's inspiration. Taking a raunchy G7#9 (perhaps THE funk chord) and applying some assertive downstrokes with a dash of hybrid picking and behind the beat swunk feel; you get a brash, yet playful lick that will never fail when you need to drop some nasty in a break.
