1: Funk Lick Library E1
These 16 lessons will teach you easy funk licks in the key of E. The first two lessons prepare you to play the licks and the backing track. The next half-dozen lessons teach you six must-know funk licks. Then, four lessons will teach you how to combine these licks to create longer licks and solos. I'll recap everything, then give you three jam tracks at different tempos so you can practice in real time at your own pace.
