    You aren't going to find "Funky basslines" on any websites. You are going to find them in music. Listen to some funky tunes then find some kind of transcription for them online... or figure it out by ear. Whatever floats your boat.

    Get Thee to the nearest Carol Kaye book. If you can find one. Lot's of funky "boogaloo" there. Until then snoop around here http://www.activebass.com/

    You should be able to find something there.

    Oh yeah and do what StupidMatt said too. :D
