Funk Guitar Rhythm 16th note 9th Chords

Today's guitar lick is a funk guitar rhythm using 16th notes. It is comprised of two chords A9 and G9. The rhythm is made up of 16th notes with a combination of muting and rests to funk things up a bit. The video example has two pretty heavy effect based sounds but this lick can sound pretty good with a clean tone and some wah as well. Hope you dig it. Funk and Funk Rock are very demanding and precise style of which I am really only peripherally familiar. For some great funky rhythms I recommend the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince and Fishbone on the funk rock side and the late great David Williams whose funk guitar studio work and clips on youtube will astound you.Have a funky Monday!
