George starts off this easy funky rhythm guitar lesson by first performing the riff so you can hear how it should sound. This funk style riff is in the key of A and is based in the pentatonic scale and is a great riff for learning the muting technique that was made really popular by guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughn if songs like Pride and Joy. Marios breaks the riff down so that it is easy for even the beginner guitarist to follow along and gives some great tips for practicing the muting technique with a scale to help you master the technique. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy rhythm guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.

A Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave and is very common and found all over the world.
