Vulfpeck's bassist Joe Dart is one of the most famous bass players around today.
He has the full range of bass techniques including:
- fast fingerstyle
- ghost notes
His note lengths, touch, and timing are sublime as are the lines he creates.
Lost My Treble Long Ago is a fantastic example of his talent and this bass tutorial breaks it down. You will learn the key, the choice colourful notes he uses, plus the funk techniques.

Thanks Dan, as always the quality of your work is over the top.
(I’m quite scared by ghost notes because I tend to get trapped into them, my brain keeps playing them even when not necessary)
Thanks so much! I know what you mean – it’s tempting to overuse them. Try to use them only in choice moments and definitely not on ballads!
Joe’s scary good.The type of player that can inspire you to either improve or quit.That you can cop any of his licks is reason for my further admiration.
Thanks, Kevin. He’s great…
