Watch the Scary Funk online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 7: Advanced Styles & Techniques
Scary Funk - Groove #39 is a video guitar lesson presented by Stu Hamm and is sourced from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know.
Here is a mash-up of two well known funk grooves, "Reach For It" by George Duke (featuring one of the all time iconic bass solos by Byron Lee Miller) and my own track "If You're Scared. Stay Home!". Both of these grooves use the thumb to get that funky sound, but I suggest that you try playing them with your fingers as well to see what a difference that will make.
