I would have to say I love the genre? But I know nothing about it. It's all about the bass. I love funk bass lines.

I was like you a couple of years ago. Just buy a couple funk complitations to get you started and your love for the music will blossom from there.

I gotta say that 70's music really has to be my favorite time period for music. Even though I don't post down here.

Yeah i love it too becuase it was the period were musicians started combining traditional instruments with electric instruments and synthersizers and stuff. I also love it how funk bands bak then consisted of like 15 people.

Dude you're so on with that. I was just thinking today how bands have shrunk down to 3 piece bands now. I was just thinking about posting about where the art of the rhythm guitar has gone. Seems like no one just plays rhythm anymore. Always the vocalist or something. But back then... damn right! It was always about putting out the best music.
