Note from the author, Mr. Rod Goelz Of all the cool things in the Basses Loaded Volume 4 "Groove Workshop", the coolest were the lessons on ghosting which are hardly ever found in any method book. Don't get me wrong, there's no-one cooler than Chuck Rainey or Jerry Jemmott ... okay James Jamerson's cooler. My point is... there is tons of R&B greatness is this volume.
