In this lesson you will learn a simple bass line from the song Atlantic City, written by Bruce Springsteen as played by the Band and Levon Helms. The idea of note length is important to this recording.
In this lesson, I will show you how to mute a note using your left hand or the hand that is on the neck of the bass. Muting notes is just as important as plucking notes, making for cleaner bass playing.
In this lesson, I will combine the techniques of muting strings with both hands together. This is the complete muting technique that will ensure you don't have any ringing strings that aren't part of your bass line.
