Ghost Note Groove With Pentatonic Fills (Free Backing track/TAB + Practice Tips & Wisdom!)

Here's another bass guitar technique lesson from my book Complete Fingerstyle Bass Technique, available on PDF, Kindle, and paperback.

Ghost notes add a percussive funk to your playing. They take a while to get used to as the pressure you exert with your fretting hand is altered depending on whether you're fretting as normal or ghosting.

Learn how to play this cool groove in this video lesson. Scroll down for the PDF and backing track for the lesson.
