L334 Slap bass with plucked octaves

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

I was sitting and practicing the main bass line to Larry Grahams The Jam, its got some rapid 16th note thumb slaps and plucked octaves, that are quite hard to execute.
Inspired by that I made up this little E groove (Has nothing to do with the Jam other than the technique used)

Cool as allways :-) Can imagine that could be used with double stops (10′s, 6′s etc…)
