Watch the C U Dorian online guitar lesson by Freekbass from 50 Freekbass Licks You MUST Know

This lick in C Dorian will show how to use plucking-pulloffs and percussive hand mutes to create a strong groovy bassline, almost like using your plucking hand like a snare drum.

The plucking notes are almost like snare drum hits or fills, and my double thumb technique is almost creating a 16th note percussion feel. On the last part of the line the thumb is almost all up-strokes which has a more "on top" kind of feel to the pocket.
