The Brown’stone: Playing The Blues Using Ghost Notes

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, we’ll be applying the ghost notes we talked about in a previous lesson to The Blues. We’ll work with a traditional Blues bassline and break it down to incorporate these more percussive elements.

I think you’re going to enjoy this one.
