Hi all, Right now I am learning some Tommy Shannons bass lines to Pride and Joy...... Okay with that being said I first learned the bass lines by ear...The song is in key of E.... However, after figuring it out, I cheated and looked at this cool bass book I purchased(by the way this is all music notation and is accurate) to see if I transcribed the part correctly and for the most part I did... One thing I noticed is that the open E string is written like this (0) 5 (0) 4 (0) (sorry I had to write it in tab because that is the only way to describe it.... When I looked in back of the book it say that this open E written like this (0) is to be played as a Ghost Note.... Question: I though Ghost notes were written with an "X" and would it be wrong to play the open E with out the ghost note effect...I can BARELY hear it on the CD when Tommy is playing it....Thanks, Kalo!
