Watch the Made With Thumb online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know

Groove # 21 gives us an option to get the tone and feel that we are going for in Groove # 20 without breaking your fingers. Check out the technique of thumbing and popping the same string to get the same sort of sound. It's a similar tone, but different, so it will help if you are familiar with both ways to play it so you can choose which better fits the song that you are playing. Once you become accustomed to playing this thumb-pop technique, you'll find many new ways to use it.
