are there such things? to make a short story long, me and some random buddies from my highschool's jazz band decided to get together and form a funk combo-ish thing. so, we decided we would probably cover some stuff, like earth, wind and fire, commodores (who i just saw live, btw, great show.), stuff like that. BUT, we also decided, since most of us have a strong grip on music theory, we could write some stuff ourselves. So I sat down, and thought about this. Is there a certain chord progression that funk favors? I've also heard that bass players playing funk like mixylodian and dorian modes. Any input in general would be welcome. Thanks.
