Ghost Notes – The Funkiest Bass Technique Of All!

Ghost notes add percussion, funk, and flair to your bass playing. Whilst it's true that the technique is primarily heard in funk music, you can actually use them in a whole range of styles.

Watch this video lesson to find out how to play them as well as incorporate them into your playing and practice.

I go into ghost notes a lot in my book 100 Funk Bass Grooves.
