    WOW! How did I miss this thread? Well, I love the funk. Old school, gritty, nasty funk. My current faves have to be

    The Meters (clearly)
    The Dap Kings
    Budos Band
    The Daktaris
    Breakestra
    The Organites
    The New Mastersounds
    Eddie Bo

    If you ask me, funk sounds best on a semi or hollowbody. Funk is actually what got me into jazz in the first place

    Oh and check out this: It's likely you may sh*t your pants.

    Soulive, definitely bringing something in their music that hasn't been around for quite awhile. There's just something about the sound of that B3.

    These guys studied enough to become Doctors of funk. Fuss on the buss, kinda like a mobile funk emergency room.

    Love this. Not a lot of time in my schedule at this time to learn a new style, but after I graduate (next spring) I'll pay attention to this, blues, and playing piano.

    I have a DVD Funk Guitar Rhythm I did about half. What would you say is generally a big difference in technique between jazz and funk guitar? It seems to me the chords of funk is much easier, but the rhythms are more complex and more integrated with the rest of the rhythm section.

    I have a Strat (84 reissue 68) which may be used to it. jwright123456789 - YouTube

    IMHO, it is key to have:

    1) no reverb on your guitar amp

    2) a MEDIUM-volume snare backbeat, no louder. Many funky grooves have been ruined by a slamming drummer whacking the two and four like he's chopping down a tree.

    I think some old school reverb can be a cool effect for chord stabs or on slower R&B influenced funk jams.

    Finding a real funk drummer is an entire thread topic in itself.
