Get The Funk Out Guitar Lesson – Extreme

In this Get The Funk Out guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this amazing song by Extreme note-for-note.

The tuning is Eb standard tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.

"Get The Funk Out" has so much incredible guitar work from Nuno Bettencourt, it will be hard to find a song that requires as many skills that are needed to be a great rock guitar player than this one. The rhythm guitar work is funky, tight, and just has an amazing groove throughout.

I will take you through each of the song's riffs in the order that each appears on the original recording.

After we get through all of that, it is time to learn one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded. Nuno's solo has just about everything in. From rhythmically intense blues based riffs, warp speed legato licks, chromatic staccato licks and the absolutely jaw dropping tapping section, this solo raised the bar big time when it was released.

I will take you through Nuno's solo note-for-note and give you some tips along the way on how to approach the really tricky sections of it. Hold on tight though, because it is one helluva wild ride!

I hope you guys enjoy this in-depth breakdown of the absolutely genius guitar work of Nuno Bettencourt. Carl...
