    With so many questions about ghost bends and ghost notes,I guess Mike Dimin must be seeing ghosts. :D.Okay poor joke. :oops:

    Well Mike, I tried out the exercise you gave me.It was on the B Minor Pentatonic scale,I guess.

    You told me to bend the B-flat and D-flat notes(1 and 4 on the A- string).Firstly I created small riffs around them.Here I had difficulty bending so low on the string.So I started bending higher up(After the 12th fret).Should I learn to bend lower down?

    Also I had trouble incorporating ghost bends since I couldn't co-ordinate with the beats.Normal bends were okay.

    Use the bends in a more melodic point high up on the neck

    I'd look for a used MTD Kingston. This one bass will take you as far as you want to go
