correct this, if ive created this thread in the wrong place or if theres an existing one just like this, but ive recently started listening to artists like James Brown and prince and i wanna be able to play just like them, but i dont know where to start. i was hoping you guys could help give some tips on the kind of chords i could start myself off with to maybe create my own cool little funky progression.

basically what im asking is .. what are the funkiest chords?

because im under the impression that funk chords are COMPLETELY different and a lot more complicated than the standard beginners chords.

9th and 13th. Strum pattern is all 16ths, maybe something like this... (o is strum, x is chunky(i.e. keep your fingers on the strings but don't press down)).

o-x-x-o x-x-o-x x-o-x-x o-o-x-x

it's also funky to slide into your starting chord from the chord above.

That's your basic funk.
