Watch the Funk Stew online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Essentials: Funk Bass Grooves

After you watch my demonstration about pick-ups and sound, feel free to make your own decision as to what pick-up configuration and right hand placement works and sounds best for you. Make sure that your hand is in the proper position and well spread out to make it as easy as possible to play the line and listen to how it's grooving with the drummer and guitar player. You may really need to work on this slowly at first before you play along with the tracks.
