Playing Tips

  • Tip #1 – Play fairly hard over the pickup of a Precision bass or neck pickup of a Jazz bass to get that characteristic snap on the upper notes
  • Tip #2 – Stab at the notes with the fretting hand finger and quickly move from and to home position to create a more staccato duration on the upper notes
  • Tip #3 – Subdivide and count slowly through the bar to gain accuracy playing the syncopated 16th notes
