This nile rodgers-style part uses a var­ied at­tack on those 16 ‘ghost’ notes. Th­ese are tran­scribed, but not al­ways played – though cru­cially the pick­ing hand does go through the mo­tions, giv­ing con­text to the up and down strokes of the pick. This also makes the rhythm flow far more nat­u­rally. It’s far eas­ier played than de­scribed (or tran­scribed) so give it a go, re­mem­ber­ing to an­chor your­self to the bass and snare drums.
