    Just joined a funk band playing bass, and I'm virtually new to the genre. Any good tabs, songs, advice on basslines, pretty much anything that will make this easier.

    I've been listening to Stanton Moore.

    Listen to The Meters, they are the godfathers of funk!

    New Orleans Funk. Start with the Meters. Good intro funk grooves by them are Fire on The Bayou, Hey Pocky Away, and Cissy Strut. From there check out other New Orleans funksters. Dumpstafunk, and Galactic both come out of New Orleans too.
