Watch the Larry Champagne online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Much of the must know funk licks explored throughout this course are sorta rough around the edges, if you will. If you're looking for a smoother path to pursue look no further than the guy with the 335 - Larry Carlton. His solo work within the Steely Dan catalog, as well as countless other record dates as a sideman, is to die for. This lick jumps right into the flow of where Larry was at in "Kid Charlemagne" from the Royal Scam record. Loaded with clever pedal points and a hint of chromaticism over a I-IV7 in F, this lick could only get better if you could capture that delicious light overdrive Larry is known for, courtesy of his lauded Dumbles.
