A "James Brown style" funk groove with anticipated notes and the good old 3 note chromatic walk up from the 9th up to the Major third. The bass line starts on the 8th note before the downbeat 1 Ive recorded the backing track in Garageband (Mac), playing the 2 rhythm guitar parts myself and using a premade drumloop from the program.

The bass is fairly simple notewise and technique-wise, but the challenge is locking with the groove and hitting that D right on the 8th note before 1, especially after visiting the high register.

You can of course play the D on the open string, but the sound of the D on the 5th fret of the A string is so much thicker

Im emulating a P-bass by only using the neck pickup and rolling a bit back on the tonecontrol
