    Ghost Notes!!!

    Last night while feeling very...eeem.... "relaxed".... and playing my Bass ,
    I discovered the phenomenen of what I think they call "Ghost notes" .
    I was working on a bassline for one of my songs ,a funky thang with
    a snappy chord sequence when suddenly myriads of
    quadruplets and high harmonics started coming out of the bass eventhough
    "the line" was based on 1/8ths, of course there was a lot of activity
    in the RH but I was amazed. I had headphones on and was playin into
    a GTI.It was a mixture of choke and release, hammers and pull's,but
    very precise, combined with RH ,co-ordinated plucking, sounded a bit
    like drum rolls between the actual Theme . A Revelation Brudders... an Systers,Ahhh Yeah !!!
    I'd been busy playin Bass constantly for two days tryin to catch
    up on a bit of practise cuz I've been neglectin' it for a while .
    I was so stunned I played on and ended up goin to bed,laughing, at 5 in the
    morning still tryin to understand what had happened.My touch
    was really light in both hands and I had a metronome on, but was too tired to
    figure-out what was goin on! When I tried it today my fingers
    on my RH were so sore I could only play for a few minutes.
    Can anyone explain this and can I call myself a...... Bad A** Mo' Fo' Bass player now !?!
