Looking for some funk shuffle songs

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by bajerovaquero, Mar 27, 2014.


  1. Hello I´m new to this forum so I hope its the right place to post this.
    Im looking for some "funk" songs with a shuffle beat around 115-130 bpm to play with a band.
    I´m thinkin in JB "doin to death" and using this David Letterman closing as intro:


    Let me know some other choices in the style

    "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder.

    "634-5789" by Wilson Pickett.

    "Green Onions" by Booker T and the MG's.

    "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth, Wind and Fire.

    And I can't remember the name of this song, but David Letterman's band used to do it all the time...it had an intro that had a triplet figure that went:

    | G-F-D-G-F-D-G-F-D-G-F-D | C-Bb-G-C-Bb-G-C-Bb-G-C-Bb-G |

    | G-F-D-G-F-D-G-F-D-G-F-D | r-D-D-D-D-D-D-r-r-r-r-r |

    "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder.
    This is corny man, I´ve played it hundreds of times, and not very funky... I would prefer to play Higher Ground which I have played just too many times.

    "634-5789" by Wilson Pickett.
    "Green Onions" by Booker T and the MG's.
    RnB tunes, not "funky"

    "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth, Wind and Fire.
    This is a bit better choice, but I´m not really into EWF vibe

    Anyone else?
