All About You (bass)

By Bass Levite

Hillsong's style of bass for praise songs incorporates a lot of open string hammer ons. There are slight variations in plucking techniques, but it goes roughly like this...

For example, if the chord is A,

------------------
------------------
------------------
-5-5-0h5-0h5-5-5-- (1 bar)

To make the tabs easier to read, the symbol <> will indicate this style of playing being used.
