Govan-esque Funk: Part 2 Govan-esque Funk: Backing Track

Now we're on to the main focus of this lesson. As said in the intro, be sure to focus on phrasing, feel, vibrato, bending, and accenting.

I've tried to include a lot of detail in the notation below, but there is still a lot that can't be taught without listening! Don't feel pressured to follow the pick strokes, hammer-ons / pull-offs, etc. Focus on the notes and the overall mood that we're striving for.

Over a different backing, this lick would sound great with a swing feel.

See you on the next page for the backing track!
