Funk #49 Course Introduction

Hi Guitar Mates and welcome to my lesson looking at the song Funk #49.

What has been interesting to me when I have mentioned the lesson to students is that they have never heard of it until I play the groove and straight away I get ” Ahh, that song”.

Well at the end of the lesson you will be able to carry on the torch and and experience the same reaction from your friends.

The song is in the Key of Am and the main riff is played in Am Pentatonic 1st position.

You will learn how to play a funk style groove and also what Chicken Picking is !!

Have fun and enjoy the lesson.
