How to Enhance Slap Bass Lines with Muted 8ths
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Learn how to improve a simple slap bass groove using 8th notes and muted 8th notes from artist-educator Andrew Ford. Listen how the muted 8th notes deepen the groove and 16ths add a skip. The added muted syncopation provides forward motion and helps it to groove more.
Elixir Strings feel great, sound great and give me a rich, full bottom end with presence and clarity that complement any style of music I play from pop to jazz and everything in between. Oh yeah, and they last an incredibly long time! Andrew Ford
