Nice one Cosmin!

For me, funk - from the guitar POV - is about setting up and keeping the groove. You're the drummer - it's what the other players need and want from you. It's what the music calls for.

Exactly!! This is one of the main reasons why I always consider teaching funk to my students that want to become well skilled rhythm players and well skilled players in general.
In my opinion, a lead guitarist that has a strong grasp on rhythm, is a far better lead player, even if he is not that technical, simply because he will involve the rhythmic knowledge into his phrasing, making things far less predictable. I think Nuno Bettencourt is a great example in this direction (even tho he doesn't quite lack technique as well laugh.gif )

Jimi Hendrix may be the quintessential example of what you're talking about though again, he certainly had some chops. Even if he never played a solo his rhythm playing/concept would have made him famous.

Aye, yes, indeed smile.gif How could I have been so silly to forget about Jimmy! And he could also sing while playing those intricate formulas - intricate in respect to the idea of singing against them - have you tried to sing over those lines? I for one can't really do it... yet laugh.gif

A little rarer. They were sort of in the NY avant/pop scene in the late 70s and 80s. Very aggressive two guitar/horn band.
RHCP are very into these guys - DEFUNKT





Chuck Brown's another one. Big influence on Hip Hop.

This is a nice funkin thread!

I also like Christophe Godin, he does some funky slap gutiar stuff as well.



Les Claypool plays some funky bass guitar as well as my other favorite Bogdan Radovic, he kicks some funky bass guitar too with some sweet slap lessons on here!

Godin is sooo cool ...seems to be at least as much twisted as a person, as his playing smile.gif
