I have chosen funk because of its unique beat and good instrumental parts including guitars, and brass. As I play the bass guitar I particularly like the funky bass lines. By the mid-1960s, James Brown had developed his signature groove that emphasized the downbeat—with heavy emphasis on the first beat of every count to reach his distinctive sound, rather than the backbeat that typified African American music. Other musical groups picked up on the rhythms, and vocal style developed by James Brown and his band, and the funk style began to grow.
Dyke & the Blazers based in Phoenix, Arizona, released "Funky Broadway" in 1967, perhaps the first record of the soul era to have "funky" in the title. , on the West Coast, Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band was releasing funk tracks beginning with its first album in 1967, climaxing in the classic single "Express Yourself" in 1971.
