sorry anyone out there can give me an advice about some funky stuff ?
Well, if you want musical reference check out:
Sly & the family stone
Tower of power
Graham central station
urgghgh.... there is ****loads more
BOOTSY! BOOTSY COLLINS!!
Someone said, "if you'd cut him with a razor, he'd BLEED funk!"
Earth, Wind and Fire
Kool & The Gang
Morris Day & The Time
I love funk, and all the above bands....
If you want the newer funk stuff try out:
Brand New Heavies
Red Hot Chili Peppers (the bass is the only really funky part)
Also check out:
Average White Band
Greyboy Allstar Band
And if you are lookin for bootsy and haven't heard of them already:
Some easy but groovin songs are:
Earth Wind Fire - Let's Groove
Herbie Hancock - Chameleon (the timing is a little difficult)
Kool and the Gang - Jungle Boogie
A Taste of Honey - Boogie Oogie Oogie (more like disco, but hey, thats funk)
Chic - Good Times
Average White Band - Pick Up The Peices
Parliament - Flashlight
Greyboy Allstar Band - Soul Dream
Tower of Power - Once You Get A Taste (look out for needing a low D)
Yeah those are some greats that got me started... Hell I am still starting!!!!
Oh well the world needs more funk. If you notice all the new commercials have funk backgrounds now... You can tell that it is going to make a comeback in the near future, even if it is just a little bit.
