When you watch a great bass player playing a groove or taking a solo, there's often a lot more going on than meets the eye! I'm sure you've experienced this before - you're watching a bass player, you're hearing a lot of notes, but the fingers of the bass players plucking hand don't seem to be playing as many notes as you're hearing!
A strange bass player phenomena?! ;)
Errr... thankfully no...
This happens when the bass player is using a combination of hammer-ons, pull-offs, and more often than not there's some raking involved too.
To start getting these into your bass playing, hammer-ons are a fantastic place to start. In this lesson I'm going to show you 3 awesome exercises to get your hammers-ons really happening! And, if you're already using hammer-ons... check these exercises out - they're killer! ;)
As always, see you in the shed...
