Guitar Tricks 169: Motown Classic Funk Riff

 
Neal shares one of his bluesy, funky rhythm riffs in this lesson. Using 16th notes and a constant right-hand rhythm with left hand dampening, this riff will sound great at your next jam session. Using the A7 chord and some double stops, you'll be getting funky in no time. Chords used are A7, D7 and E7.
