Watch the House Candy online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
But what about the 80's, you ask? There was PLENTY of fortified funk in that decade as well from an array of colorful characters including Prince, Cameo, Rick James, and the focus of this must know lick; the Mary Jane Girls. Loaded with staccato picked low register Em motives, this lick plays closely to what's heard in the radio favorite "In My House". Fueled by pouncing downstrokes and a nimble fret hand muting technique, this is the stuff 80's funk was made out of. And, yes, it's a dorian lick.
