I've just started getting into some funky stuff and I was wondering if there was a certain scale funk players follow or if its just whatever sounds good to them. Please try to help or tell me I'm a dumbads for thinking there was a funk scale. just kidding
it's surprisingly simple what they play, minor pentatonic and blues are pretty much the basis of funk.

but unlike other genres, put a lot of thought into rhythm and groove, and keep it pretty simple.

It is all about the rhythm. Solos in funk are usually played by trumpets or saxophones, but generally they just play in the blues scale.
