I'm looking for resources on how to play funk/soul guitar in the style of Jimmy Nolen, Catfish Collins, Steve Cropper, Binky Griptite, Curtis Mayfield, Charlie Pitts, Leo Nocentelli, etc. (I realize that is a broad range of playing styles). It's difficult to find lessons/tabs on soul/funk guitar compared to rock music and it's made more difficult by the fact that most performance videos of these styles are generally focused on the dynamic frontman i.e. JB, so if anyone has stumbled across some videos that focus on the guitarist would be really useful. For anyone else that has been looking for the same thing, this guy's youtube channel is amazing: http://www.youtube.com/user/mnaicck/
