    So it appears that by unanimous consensus that the needle is definitely pushing into the positive on the funk-o-meter, or "funkometre" as we say in my country.

    Good thread, would read again....

    You might really be funky if you have no money left over for soap!

    What year is that beauty?

    You would not be faking the funk, my friend...unless of course you can't play.

    For me... The pbass is best for the fingerstyle funk, not so good for the slap (just personal preference).

    I would like to say that there is some mislabeling of funk on here....

    Slap does not = funk
    Funk does not = slap

    You could also be a little bit Country and a little bit Rock and Roll w/ that bass.
