Watch the Slap Hammer Three online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 6: Groove Lexicon
Slap Hammer Three - Groove #31 is a video guitar lesson presented by Stu Hamm and is sourced from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know.
Here we are going to use the same rhythm tracks from Carl and Bernie, but I am going to play a bass line with a different approach. This time I will add a little bit of myself to the groove, and play a groove that uses some slapping and hammer-ons. This is a pretty quick series of notes, and it's up to you to decide how much you want to make each note speak and when you want to play some as ghost notes. Check out the great difference in vibe between this groove and the last one, all because of the way I approach the bass part. So experiment on your own and come up with your own groove-altering versions.
