Watch the Hanky Chanky online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
If a rapper can aptly lay down the funk, imagine what a jazz giant can dish out. Here's a John Scofield-type idea that makes use of a must know approach on a 7#9 chord that's similar to what Sco laid down on a tune called "Chank" from his collaborative effort with Medeski, Martin & Wood that produced the very awesome A Go Go record. In this four bar repeater you have textbook Sco in the form of laid back buttery smooth chank par excellence, sneaky use of space, careful palm muting, and plenty of dorian-ess. Be careful not to jump the gun, as the initial downbeat states a 1/4 note rest. As you play the riff you can just feel his ultra clean, mid range honk tone from that signature Ibanez AS-200 he's always sportin'.
