    Normally, I play ska, classic rock, punk ect. stuff but every so often I like to learn a good funk or an oldschool rap riff. So if anybody could point me towards a cool riff, that would be awesome.

    AKA Good Times by Chic

    I figured out Cosmic Slop by Funkadelic... I gotta convince King Bowman to cover that song! :D

    "Dazz" is a pretty good one, and so is "Boogie Oogie Oogie".

    Let me suggest "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash, the main riff only consists of two notes, but it's still pretty damn cool.
  7. Schoolboy Crush by Average White Band. Thankyoufaletmebemicelfagain by Sly Stone.

    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    "Hot, Hot Summer Days" by Sugarhill Gang, Doug Wimbish on the '75 Jazz. Easily the BEST hip hop bassline ever!
