Ok. Somebody help me with these. I don't really know how to do them...
Playing D then E (5th and seventh fret on the A string). Pluck the D as normal, then using another finger, push down on the E, but don't pluck again.
Basically the reverse of a hammer-on. Start with both fingers on their notes (D and E, in this example), pluck the E, then pull the finger fretting the E off the sting, leaving the finger fretting the D, sounding the note without plucking it.
I have (perhaps incorrectly) assumed you are playing on a fretted bass. Same applies for a fretless, except then you would have to say "stop" instead of "fret"
I hope I've helped.
What FF said but I think he said C when he was going to say E, either that or I am very confused.
To restate the pull off have your fingers on the E and the D, on the A string pluck the E then release it sounding the D.
Thanks gruff. Man, I must be getting tired. It's late here, I am trying to finish off some freelance work, and waiting for the client to email me. I posted the response, and man, did I ever blow it.
I think its all better now.
No prob FF, GP knows tired.
Thanks guys. I thought it was something like that.
