Watch the Performance Breakdown online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Slap Bass

Let’s take the main riff from my song “Outbound” and break it down into bite-size portions that you can easily digest.

There are some complicated hammer-ons and hammer-offs that will take you a while to master, but when you do, check out how much different the groove sounds when you play it slowly as compared to up to speed. The second part of the groove goes to A minor and the rhythmic patterns change a bit but it is still kin of the same riff.

Good luck!
