I'm looking for some new music, both to listen to, and to learn, especially funk, and blues. It's hard to find any information on funk music, being their is no forum for it. Any suggestions for some funk groups that have good guitarist? any with exceptional bass playing? and any that would just be great to listen to, or learn from other instrument? Same aplies for Blues, but I'm really trying to get more funk, since I already know, and have, quite a bit of blues music.

Leroy "Sugar" Bonner is the only funk guitarist I know. I don't know much about his licks, but he had a nice 'fro.
