Ok. So I like funk, but can't quite describe what funk actually is... Musically all I can come up is with that minor 7ths sound somewhat funky a good amount of the time. I know that sounds pretty stupid, so what it FUNK? And how is it played? Are these the right/good questions?

Funk is a music genre, for guitar, you play basic rhythms, using dominant chords and string muting. You also use 16th notes.

funk is about music which makes you move/dance .
the priority is the groove
you need a rhythm which everyone knows intutativly and then you all bulid that rhythm collectivally

It's all about the syncopation... where the accents fall on counts where they normally wouldn't. It's difficult to explain, and is more of a feel. Also, plenty of muting helps you accent those counts to express the syncopation.

Yeah, I got that much down. I'm just trying to learn more about it, apparently there isn't much more to it though...

It's all about the Bop Gun and keeping the Nose down. What do you have to say, Starchild? These guys need to latch onto the P-Funk and jive.

Please, listen to Parliament/Funkadelic, and everything will become very clear.

Just ask our minister of education, Richard Pryor.

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.
