Watch the Reid All About It online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know

As we've learned from the collection of Funkadelic licks: funk guitar covers a lot of ground. Always pushing the envelope, Living Colour's guitar guru Vernon Reid is always aiming to cover even more ground with his combining of myriad styles and approaches. Here in this lick that calls out to a guitar break heard in "Love Rears It's Ugly Head" from the Time's Up CD, Reid swunks his way through a B dorian idea that's laced with bebop inflections via descending chromatics, showing us the funk can be taken even further out.
