    So I'm getting into the funk groove... Looking for beginner funk tips for an intermediate/advanced guitarist.

    So far I'm really into using the middle position on my tele and the 2 and 4 on the strat. Sold my compressor a while back, so bought a new one (Keeley+, it sounds better to me in the demos than the squishy Ross type, although maybe that's the ticket for funk?)

    Taking some online lessons to learn rhythms - truefire had a black Friday sale, so I went for the entire year of access)

    I was in a chilis cover band, so not a complete stranger to the style, but really looking to immerse myself and get good at those funky, choppy sounds.

    As it stands, I think the biggest thing is to find a great bass player to jam with.
