    I love what Joy said, I think everyone is funky in their own way..but if you're talking about the Funk, bringing the Funk..I think this is something that is shaped into our lives and personalities as we grow, from a young age til high school....and then boom, Funk..in all it's delight...

    Nurture seems like it would be the right response, but I'm not sure. I think some degree of musical potential is genetic. I didn't see my dad much until I was about 13 but I always a had a strong inclination towards music along the same lines. Fortunately for me, I happen to approach music from a less technical standpoint or rather; I happen to (according to him) just pick things up better.

    I guess it could go either way, but my bet is on nurture still.
