E Funk Licks

E Funk Licks is a free electric guitar lesson by Peter Vogl that covers a couple of licks that can be played over a funky one chord vamp in the key of E. The licks come out of the Em Pentatonic scale and use a snapping and popping fingerstyle technique with the right hand. In the video, we will play against the backing track “Funk in E”, which is track 10 from the Let’s Jam! Blues and Rock CD.
