Check out Primus not their hit songs though as they tend to be less funky.
Do you use a BR-600?

Funk is often a single chord for the entire song. There aren't any really characteristic progressions.

As for scales, funk doesn't have anything especially characteristic about it. However, it doesn't make a lot of use of exotic scale. Therefore, the major and minor scales, as well as their respective pentatonic scales would be a good start.

Funk is all about the groove. Someone who understands that can be funky with a single note. Anything more is just for fun.
