Lesson notes

Are you looking for a lesson in funk? Well then look no further! This tune by Earth, Wind and Fire has some excellent examples of funk guitar at its best.

Released on their 1975 album That’s the Way of the World, this funk classic will get your rhythm sharper and your fingers faster.

Starting with an ultra-funky single string riff and morphing into a series of chord hits that will make you groove, it comes complete with fast pentatonic licks that will challenge any player of any level.

With this lesson you’ll uncover the ins and outs of this song including some hard-driving licks and some “chanky” rhythm guitar. Get your groove and feel going stronger with the rhythm parts, and you’ll find all aspects of your playing improving.
