    well, grab yer Wah and have at it. Thanks to Lefty for supplying the fun this month. Next Month, I'm thinking a Texas Blues. I'll be hunting that down soon.

    Thanks Jay. I might be able to use this one. I have an assignment from teacher to create my own song and this could come in hand.

    Thanks Jay

    Don't listen to much funk...

    I go right in to all the normal 1-4-5 blues stuff playing over this...it all works, hoping someone posts something funky to get some ideas tho!

    Nice stuff Frank and Dot..

    We'll see when I can get to it.. Just got back from day at doctors and X Rays..
    My study/studio and most of my home is tile. My study is 2 steps down.. On way to bed..I slipped and bounced my back off the steps.. Looks like a cracked rib..
    Lucky it is above the burst discs i have been getting Cortisone shots trying to avoid surgery. However..right side..and I am right handed,,
    Tonight maybe I'll see if I can pick up one of the guitars..

    My go,, I couldn't come with with a decent guitar lead & not sound noodling, the funk is about rhythm, so I spent time
    adding a couple keyboard & drum tracks hoping to catch the groove.
    The rhythm guitar is a Strat into OR15, 4x12 cabinet, no FX ,just mics & preamp.

    Take 2,, tryin to funk it up on a Tele & Fender Supersonic.
    Holding the groove for more than one time round was proving to be a challenge, so I cheated & looped it.:)
