In this groove we do it exclusively slap and pop or pluck but there is more emphasis on slapping with your thumb, even with octave intervals that are normally plucked. So a lot of effort and accuracy is required to get a good sound from slapping the higher G and D strings. We also make use of hammer ons and muted notes in this groove along with a featured lick that outlines the G blues scale.
