Watch the Short Stop online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 4: Groove Vocabulary

Short Stop - Lick #6 is a video guitar lesson presented by Freekbass and is sourced from 50 Freekbass Licks You MUST Know.

When playing bass, if you use all parts of both your left and right hands to help enhance the rhythm, one or two notes can feel like a bunch of notes or more importantly rhythms.

Here I am playing just a D to a low F, but I am coming down with my left hand as a ghost note, and then following that up with my right hand, before I pluck the note, creating kind of a triplet rhythm. This makes this simple D to F groove have much more feel and groove.
