Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry

Justinguitar.com Song Lessons

In this guitar lesson we learn to play the awesome funk song Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry

This is an all time classic guitar song that I've been playing in bands since my teens, but I went over it carefully and got it nailed down much better than I did before to make sure you get an accurate lesson! It's a lot of fun but there are some tricky bits!

If you're struggling with your 9 chords, funk strumming, hits of scratches then check out the lessons you find in my Funk Guitar Course!

Getting the Sound

Guitar
For this lesson I'm using my Suhr Classic with pickup selector in position 4 (split bridge humbucker and middle together). The orginal sounds more like a Telecaster to me, but there's still a strange electronic interference at my studio and my tele picks it up too much!

Amp
I'm using the Kemper Profiler for this lesson using the 62 Luxe Reverb profile by M Britt.

Effects
Just a bit of reverb in the Kemper.
