    But some are basics
    Please add to my list of I miss something .

    1_hammer on
    2_pull of
    3_ slide
    4_ mute and dead note

    Any more left hand basic ?

    - Harmonics
    - Harmonic slide (fretless)
    - Trill (rapid hammer on/pull off)
    - Left hand slap (not a good term, but it's a percussive technique I see used a lot in slap bass)

    This might be more advanced but it's the Rocco Prestia technique that is somewhere between a muted note and a plucked note (see What is Hip).
