Hmmm.

I haven't got a wah pedal (yet) but i knew i would have to get one. Suggestions for which wah to buy?

I havn't got much of a budget. 200 AUD max.

If you're just messing around, a wah pedal isn't quite a necessity. Upstrokes are also pretty crucial to the sound.

For funk, a Vox wah would probably be a great choice.

Dunlop Crybaby

And 9th chords.

EDIT:

Also, start playing with flatter fingers so you can get some skank in your sound.

Step on the wah on quarter notes. Keep your strumming hand doing sixteenth notes. Mute the strings with your left hand = Instant James Brown effect.

But yeah, dunlop crybaby, but buy a adapter, so you don't have to keep buying batteries.

Dominant 9 chords are great too

They use alot of jazz chords. Try some ninth, minor seventh, 7#9, major seventh, etc.

Often only the top 3 strings are played, especially in more reggae-funk stuff. Sliding up semitones using 9th chords (or any funky chord) is also really funky. Try to stay away from straight major and minor chords, but a normal chord progression can be funked up by syncopating it.
