L167 Thumb-picking funky E7 bass groove

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites Im almost only practicing this technique these days, makes playing standard fingerstyle so easy in comparison. It is possible to play this funky groove with standard fingerstyle. Im using thumb, index and middle fingers only NB: Just realized that in the slow version, im changing the rhythm a bit on the sliding parts in bars 2 and 4 , please listen to the normal version for correct timing.

Well, not exactly will take too much work to update the older video links, but the videos are hosted on blip.tv, you can download from there 1 video at a time.
Another possiblity is to donate and download all 300 licks of the day –read more here

Hello Marlow,

Again a very great funky groove!

I’ve a little question: is it possible for you to modify the olds pages of your website, to give the possibility of downloading thoses greats videos? (now, on new lessons, we can download flash videos but not for olders)

Cause I’m often on road, and sometimes my hotel don’t give me the possibility to have a internet acces point.

So i could transfert them on my mobile computer and could work with my bass and headphones in my room.(Sorry for my poor english)

Thanks and best regards.
