When playing bass, if you use all parts of both your left and right hands to help enhance the rhythm, one or two notes can feel like a bunch of notes or more importantly rhythms.

Here I am playing just a D to a low F, but I am coming down with my left hand as a ghost note, and then following that up with my right hand, before I pluck the note, creating kind of a triplet rhythm. This makes this simple D to F groove have much more feel and groove.
