aren't they great...in a spooky sorta way?
I learned to use them over the years.
I play my regular note softer and the gost louder, so they are about the same level. I like to use them...must be my Jaco and Rocco influences.
Please forgive my ignorance, but what is a ghost note?
ghost notes are basically muted pluckings used in syncopated lines.
for a thorough explanation with SUPERB examples:
click on lessons, then click on ghost notes 1 and/or ghost notes 2.
get there quickly, the site is rumored to go down any day.
Great when used appropriately.
Yes, and not just syncopated lines. They're used in swing and shuffles too. They're a type of embellishment and like all embellishments they sound great when used tastefully and lame when they're overused.
