Watch the All-About online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know

I remember the first time that I heard the song "Roundabout" by the band Yes on the radio. I hopped on my stingray and rode to K-Mart and bought "Fragile", which had to be the first LP I bought with my own money. Such a driving, funky bass line~! This groove is a bit reminiscent of that moment in my life, and uses hammer-ons for the first time in this course. Also foreshadowed is the use of ghost notes, as some of the 16th notes in the pattern can either be played fully, or somewhat muted. The rhythmic aspect of the groove will still work if you hear the whole note or just the attack.
