Topic starter  

i was wondering if there are any funk songs that would be essential to learning funk guitar, like a standard for funk? Or are there just any that would contain a lot of cliche funk riffs that would help a newcomer to funk learn it better?

there is too much to put down.
I would listen to any James Brown, Curtis Mayfield's 'Superfly', anything by Parliment Funkedelic, and you need some major doses of George Clinton.

Curtis Mayfield has a best of CD. start there.
then get a wah and a strat.

If you go to About.com's guitar section, there are a couple of interesting lessons on funk chords, with mp3 examples for you to practise sounding like.
