Watch the 5-4-1 R&B #3 online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

String muting can be a problem with this groove, especially at this slow tempo it becomes very exposed, do your best to keep the strings you are not playing from ringing during the figure in bar 3 in particular. I use my left and right hand fingers for muting adjacent strings but in the end we are looking for attitude over perfect execution.
