How to Use Ghost Notes – Mikey Hachey bass guitar lesson Level Beginner is important and interesting to increase your play bass guitar skills, make you smart and beware in future. In this time we will learn a little bit about How to Use Ghost Notes – Mikey Hachey bass guitar lesson Level Beginner
In music, a ghost note, dead note, or false note, is a musical note with a rhythmic value, but no discernible pitch when played. On stringed instruments, this is played by sounding a muted string. “Muted to the point where it is more percussive sounding than obvious and clear in pitch. There is a pitch, to be sure, but its musical value is more rhythmic than melodic or harmonic…they add momentum and drive to any bass line.” In musical notation, this is represented by an “X” or a note head in parentheses. Occurring in a rhythmic figure they are purposely deemphasized, often to the point of near silence.
On the electric bass, a ghost note is usually played by muting the string with the left hand while plucking the string with the right hand to create a percussive sound.
This video series takes a fun and easy approach to learning seemingly difficult bass lines one step at a time. We look at a simple 4 or 8 measure bass line pattern and break it down into smaller parts. We can then reconstruct the bass line by adding these smaller parts together and by building them up to tempo.
After years of following along with instructional workout videos, I came up with the concept of teaching people how to play bass by breaking things down into smaller pieces to play along with. I believe you can achieve a bigger end result by adding the sum of many small parts over time.
This lesson will be broken down into smaller and easier parts
