Watch the Straight Back to Action online guitar lesson by Freekbass from 50 Freekbass Licks You MUST Know

To start this line, I am really putting a heavy emphasis on the One where I am playing both the low F# (2nd fret on the E string) along with the octave on the D string (4th fret), by doing a quick and heavy "pull" of the strings with both my thumb on the low note, and my index finger on the high note. After that I am doing some plucking of the minor 7th, the octave, along with some rolling hammer-on fills.

The fills and all of the plucking notes I'm keeping very tight and staccato-like mimicking a horn line or snare dum fill. I stay thin a lot on a lot of these lines, but I am guessing you are starting to see what we are essentially doing is being a drummer that can play notes.

A lot of folks think the bass is close to the guitar (looks similar, 4 of the first 6 strings, etc.) but I always think of us bassists closer to the drum world. I actually started off as a drummer, then moved to guitar, and found home when I first played bass as hopefully many of you watching this video have done.
