Watch the Open E Ghost Note Slap online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Slap Bass

To get you familiar with the ghost note technique, let's start with a basic exercise on the open E string to get your left hand up to speed and comfortable with creating a sound with your left hand. Then I will break down and show you a lick that is a staple of my funk/slap vocabulary that combines hammer-ons with the ghost notes.

Check out how different it sounds and feels at different tempos!
