Bass Articulations

Bass Lesson Block

Going beyond basic bass technique we will learn common bass articulations such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, trills, slides and more.


Learn the hammer-on bass technique. In this lesson I explain how and why you do hammer-ons, how to make them sound good, notation and I give you exercises and songs to practice.


Learn the left hand pull-off technique for the bass guitar. Learn what pull-offs are, why you use and how to make them sound good.

Combining Hammer-Ons and Pull-offs

Bass hammer-ons and pull-offs are very common. It's also very common to combine them into a longer musical phrase.
