L334 Slap bass with plucked octaves

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites 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)   Support me by downloading Mp4 video, mp3 sound, PDF of standard notation/TAB transcription PLUS GuitarPro 5 (.gp5) and 6 (.gpx)files for interactive practice

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