Watch the Section 3: Let's Play! online guitar lesson by John Goldsby from Upright Bass Handbook
In Section 3, we'll play some basic tracks using the open D and the high D on the G string. Be sure to take these exercises slowly, focus on finding the high D, and play in time with a strong sound. All of the other notes you'll need to know are in the same left hand position where you find the high D. Be aware of getting in the groove of the track, and place your notes right "in the pocket" with the drummer. Have fun!
