    Takes me back just a bit. I hear a lot in that term, Funk. People that come to my mind is obviously George Clinton and the whole Parliment/Funkadelic empire, Bootsie Collins, and less obvious- George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Lenny White, Tower of Power. That's just the crust of my funk. Turn your ear on to a bit of *my* funk. Trying to stay true.




    and a little of this............

    This is funny. I knocked myself out learning this on bass in E or drop D or something way back when. The song wasn't happening in C. Turns out it's keyboard, not bass.

    Yeah, since Hendrix just uses it in the intro, he must have copped it off simple song.

    Awesome thread, by the way.

    Semi-Hollow or Hollow with buckers or P90s into a black faced Fender. Wah optional.

    Strat in positions two or four also works.

    Nice guitar work, and then the Doctor climbs under his organ about 9:50 to do the bass solo with his hands on the bass pedals...

    Some funky tunes we quickly recorded in the rehearsal room, as a short demo.
    We kept the solos deliberately short, to not bore the venue-owners the demo is intented for
    (which are not jazz-stages). The last one even has some yells! (We really had fun playing these ;-)

    A classic from the Meters circa 1975, "They All Ask'd For You." (Why they use an apostrophe in the title is beyond me. I would have suggested they just spell it "Axed" for you, but no one asked me....)

    Lot of tourist-y footage of New Orleans. As it's going on ten years since I left there, I enjoy that too.

    Here's another cut from the same record: "Perdido Street Blues." This sounds a lot like New Orleans and Dr. John, of course, but it also reminds me of Donald Fagen's solo work (-which I tend to love).

    David Spinozza. I've had this on vinyl for 30+ years, he was one of those killer studio cats like Carlton, Ritenour, busy making everyone else sound great.

    Grant Green's Jan Jan?! LOVE IT! Big Grant Green fan. My band has started playing Grant's tune Matador.

    On the album, are you using an envelop filter exclusively or do you also use a wah pedal? Just curious. Great playing and great feel!

  44. #143
    Hey Man, Glad you dig. We love those Grant Green/Lou Donaldson vibes, kinda where this band started. On the record I borrowed an Xotic Robotalk 2, a great pedal, i mainly used the right Channel of the 2. The rest was an Ernie Ball wah, which I've since retired...but then i'm always changing wah pedals, i mean, i got a serious problem. I think my dream board would just have 15 wah pedals on it..

    Found this old recording of my group's saxplayer, when he was still touring with Ronald Shannon Jackson's Free Funk Society. It's not really my cup of tea, but it has a cool solo of Vernon Reid on banjo!



    And another one as a bonus (again not really my cup of tea...)
