: HEY!! can you guys give me some tips on how to get more funky? I feel like my bass lines are starting to all sound the same and i would like some pointers on how to keep a good funky groove! Thank you for you help! the BREWMIESTER
: P.S. Does the BP200 by digitec have a good wah wah and a synth bass simulator??

El Pajaro is right! In all the 30+ years of playing, one thing I try to instill in my students: "Space is just as important as sound." There are times when a simple half note and quarter noter line is what is needed to form a solid foundation, just as a bit more space using 1/8th's and 1/16th's will help funk. Some of the best funk I've heard only uses 3-5 notes per bar... and they're all 1/16th's!!
