Bootsy Collin's Funk University Coming Soon


Funk bassist Bootsy Collins has announced Bootsy's Funk University, an online bass school for players around the planet to study under his direction.

As Funk University's Lead "Professor," Collins will provide lectures on funk, the bass, and his body of work with James Brown, George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic, and solo projects.

In addition, Collins has arranged an ensemble of players to provide a curriculum designed to promote and teach funk to intermediate and advanced players. The lectures, lessons, and exercises will be accessed through streaming video, with tablature downloads available.

Bootsy's bass school will also hold "office hours" where students are able to get their questions answered online. The entire staff will be reviewing and holding regular competitions throughout the year.

"The best day of my life was when I graduated from P.U.," states Collins. "The next best day of my life will be to see students graduate from F.U."

Here's a little taste of Bootsy's Basic Funk Formula to tide you over until Funk U opens its virtual doors:

Bootsy's Funk University begins its first semester on July 1, 2010 with enrollment based on a first come, first serve basis.
