The ghost notes have been written on the string on which it is most logical to play them. This is a cool effect and works since the harmonic notes work well with the overall tonality of the piece.
This piece features no less than three bass solos. The first, at letter B is groove-based, featuring plenty of octave licks. The effect is similar to a trill, but sounds funkier. Joe shifts up a gear for the second bass solo beginning at D.
Note the use of the D blues scale for the quick-fire descending licks bar 21 and the use of octave-based licks again. The octave phrase from bars is tough, both in terms of technique and timing. Practice this slowly and work closely with the track as a guide when learning this part. This solo leads back to the main groove, which is followed by a new section letter F in which Joe plays a C minor-based unison figure with the piano.
This is simple to play, but sounds great and is a nice break from the D tonality used so far. The third solo is at letter H and begins with an ascending octave lick. The ghost notes between the octave figures should be played with the raking technique: pluck the note on the G-string, then rake backwards across the D and A-strings with the same finger. More quick-fire blues scale licks follow, leading into some repetitive phrases that are easier to perform than they are to read. This solo leads back into the main groove, which this time Joe embellishes with fills.
Note the brief use of the octave pedal in bar The track closes with a repeat of the unison melody from earlier in the piece. This is a tough piece to get together. The solos on this track are a fantastic demonstration of how much you can do with some simple scale choices blues scale, pentatonic etc combined with energy and groove.

March 11, Vintage Music Man top loaded chrome plated, steel bridge plate with vintage nickel plated steel saddles.Joe Dart first picked up a bass at the age of eight, when his parents suggested that he and his siblings form a family band.
The family band never materialized, but Dart stuck with it, and soon developed a love for the instrument, and for the bass-driven funk and soul music of the 60's and 70's. Influenced early-on by players such as Flea, Verdine White, Rocco Prestia and Pino Palladino, Dart found the opportunity to hone his chops and his ear in high school, both in his school's music program and with his regularly gigging band.
After high school, Dart attended music school at the University of Michigan, but soon found his calling on the road. After touring with a prominent college band, he connected back in Michigan with his future bandmates Jack Stratton, Theo Katzman and Woody Goss. The foursome had an instant chemistry in the studio, and became the house band for Stratton's 'Vulf Records' label.
Dubbed The 'Vulfpeck', they have gone on to release four EP's, three full-length albums, and numerous live-in-studio videos on YouTube. Through his work with VulfpeckDart has had the opportunity to play with some of the great session-musicians, sidemen, and bandleaders of all time, including Bernard Purdie, Clyde Stubblefield, David T. And then I started noticing that every time they provided a Markbass rig, I walked off stage feeling like I had played a truly great show.
Somehow the clarity, punch, and warmth of Markbass amps was making me play better. It's hard to put into words, really, but these amps sound like my hands, my bass, my playing. Not overly colored or effected - just a deep, punchy, warm and clear projection of what it is that I'm putting out there. It feels absolutely amazing. My deepest gratitude to the Markbass team.

Joe doesn't seem to own a stingray bass. Stingray 4 basses have control plates. In the video we can see Joe playing an electric bass in an upright position. When the camera pans over him, we can clearly see the SX logo on the bass, along with some additional writing along the headstock. I would tend to believe the writing says Vintage Series.
