This week we’re taking a look at the main bass riff from the song Dec 63 (Oh What A Night) by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, played by Don Ciccone.

This is a great riff to learn for beginner to intermediate players because it makes us of a complete major scale (giving you a little insight into how scales can be used) and, most importantly, it includes several ghost notes.

So in this lesson, we’ll take a look at the bass riff and I’ll show you a method for mastering the ghost note technique by way of what I call ‘home position’. This will help with playing ghost notes and also improve your overall technique and muting.
