Watch the Delicadelic online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
So far we've only checked out Funkadelic guitar examples from Michael Hampton and Gary Shider. But these guys are by no means the only axemen to share the stage with George Clinton & Co. This 180 degree lick looks back at the work of the late, great Eddie Hazel and takes a hint from the intro to a tune called "Can You Get To That". To add to the uniqueness, it's the only one here in '50 Funk Licks You Must Know' that was originally played on an acoustic. Funk comes in many forms and embraces many styles, and no band was better at fusing styles from all over musical landscape then Funkadelic (and Parliament as well). This down home sounding riff in E will have you playing rootsy sliding blues motives that have a descending chromatic element that eventually winds down to a Muddy Waters-type turnaround lick in bar 4.
