Hello GMC !
-In today's lesson we are going to practice some left hand muting.Good left hand muting technique is essential for every bass player and muted notes play a large role in bass lines and groove building.If you want to sound groovy you just can't avoid it!
-In this lesson I will introduce you to a series of exercises that will help you develop and practice your left hand muting technique.I used a cool drum beat to play a role of a metronome in order to have more fun while practicing.
-As a bonus you will practice along right hand alternating as well!
-This lesson contains real drum backings for all major tempos, also there is a practice-ready guitar pro file that is tuned for loop able exercises.
-Tempo: 120 bpm
-Time signature: 4/4
-Difficulty: for all levels of playing
-Tuning: standard EADG
Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Peavey Cirrus bass with active soapbar pickups, equal mix of both of them with added bass and treble on onboard eq - then going to the nemesis (eden) amp with a 1x15" speaker and slightly added bass and treble there (at 1 o'clock position).
Feel free to ask me any questions in the lesson feedback and in the forum.
Enjoy and have a lot of fun muting in this one!
