Bass Riff #1 Short and sweet. This riff involves slapping, one pop (pluck) & hammer-ons. The neat thing about this lick is that you're using the same two frets (14th & 16th) on all strings! Obviously, the rhythmic pattern is important, but the muted slaps & and the hammer-ons really add the sizzle... the pop near the beginning of the riff punctuates this little groove.
TIP: first listen to the fast riff to get the feel of this groove, then listen to the slower version and practice just the rhythm before you even look at the tablature.
