    Everyone knows a good funk riff when they hear one, because, more times than not, you can’t help but wear that funky riff all over your face.

  • TRIBUTE TO RUFUS & CHAKA KAHN

    8:53

    Few bands can claim they had the diversity that RUFUS had, they had a great lead singer with R&B icon Chaka Kahn ,perhaps the greatest lead guitar player of that era in Tony Maiden,Bobby Watson provided a solid Bass Guitar,plus the fixings of Kevin Murphy,Nate and the others who followed.They gave us music to move,groove,shake and just bring the soul to a higher level.Call their music whatever.To this day they remain my favorite R&B,Funk & Soul Band Of The Mid 1970's.

    'Perhaps because funk guitar centers on rhythm and repetition rather than flashy technique, the genre’s greatest practitioners often get short shrift in discussions about six-string giants. With all due respect to the shredders of the world, the ten players below deserve prime spots in the pantheon of guitar legends'

    Inspired by the Gibson post ' Funkmeisters: 10 Giants of Funk Guitar' - here are some classic songs/riffs/solos from the mighty funk legends!

    1. Freddie Stone (Sly & the Family Stone)
    “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin).

    2. Jimmy Nolan (James Brown)
    “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”

    3. Al McKay (Earth Wind & Fire)
    “September”

    4. Eddie Hazel (Parliament-Funkadelic)
    “Maggot Brain”

    5. Tony Maiden (Rufus)
    “Once You Get Started”

    6. Leo Nocentelli (The Meters)
    “Cissy Strut,”

    7. Nile Rodgers (Chic)
    “Everybody Dance”

    8.Steve Cropper (Booker T & the MGs)
    “Soul Man”

    9. Larry “Sugarfoot” Bonner (Ohio Players)

    [November 2014] Tony Maiden was in Shimizu, Japan for the projects with a young & gifted Japanese drummer Riku Taira.
