You should check out "Transmutation" by Praxis and another disk called Funkronomicon (a compilation disk on Axiom)

i was just wondering whether or not anyone was into funk/jazz fusion type guitar playing, and if the are could they recoment some good technical songs to learn, a link to some tabs would be great.

I think that people tend to approach learning jazz the same way they approach learning other stuff, which is by learning tunes, and this doesn't really work, at least not at first. You have to listen to a lot of it (I'd suggest mike stern for guitar, herbie han**** also has great fusion/funk, piano player) and be familiar with how it sounds. Then get to learning jazz voicings instead of the ones you are probably used to now. You should also get to learning arpeggios and scales that come up in jazz. To play good fusion you need a strong straight ahead jazz background. Buy some books if you aren't taking lessons.
If you absolutely must learn a song, try Chromozone, its in the real book, mike stern.

Just to let you know i take lessons from on of the best musicians in Melbourne, Australia. He has been teaching me jazz voicing, chords etc for about 3/4 of a year now, so i have quite a lot of jazz knowledge. But it seems that by what you post you have alot of jazz/fusion knowledge and experience so i was hoping that you could give me some players names to ask about.
