Ghost Notes on Bass (Part 2) (L#41)

in Technique

In the first part of this lesson on ghost notes on bass, I showed you three different ways to mute the strings. If you haven't seen this lesson, please watch it before this one, unless you feel you're already a professional string muter ;).

In this lesson, I'm showing you a little groove in Bb to put that into practice. I'm taking you through this groove to help you get really comfortable getting your dead notes from different areas and really feel the flow with your right hand. All this has to be really fluid to sound great.

Once you've got the two parts of this groove under your fingers, you can try playing it over a metronome or drum machine.
