In this Guitar Lick of the Day series you'll learn how to play in the style of '60s funk & soul legends James Brown, The Meters, Booker T & the MGs and Sly & The Family Stone. One key element you'll develop is a strong sense of rhythm by incorporating syncopated strumming patterns while playing a variety of Dom 7 and Dom 9 chords and using various guitar licks. This is an excellent lesson series for any guitarist looking to enhance their rhythm guitar chops.

About '60s Funk & Soul:
"Funk" originated in the mid '60s when James Brown first introduced "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag." This infectious sound quickly caught the attention of the world and landed Mr. Brown the title of "The Godfather of Funk & Soul." The funk sound featured tight syncopated bass and drum back beats with "scratch" guitar rhythms playing over the groove. Simultaneously bands like Booker T & the MG's were pioneering new sounds with their unique version of soul & rock 'n roll.
