Ghost notes (dead notes) lessons for Bass
It would be awesome to have lessons on muted/ghost notes. Muting is talked about briefly, but really we need lesson videos, and SONGS to play with these muted notes. Almost every genre has bass playing with "ghost" notes which are muted notes played for bass and there are a few songs in Yousician with them, but there is no lesson. It seems a huge omission. Lesson and lots of practice songs with muted notes. Once these lessons and songs (at various levels) are there, then any song with muted notes can be played (Premium Plus songs have muted notes [e.g. RHCP and BB King] though there is no Yousician lesson even mentioning "ghost" notes for Bass).

An excellent idea. There's some great songs on Yousician for Bass that contain dead notes, like Corazon Partio. Yousician does recognize them if I just tap on the string without making a note. However, I can't figure out by myself how to do it quickly and interspersed with proper notes. A proper lesson and focused exercises are definitely needed for this.
I also wonder if the dead notes relate to the slap technique. Would love to have lessons and exercises about that, too.
Good idea, but I don't think the yousician algorythm is able to detect dead notes

we really need this I only learned bass from Yousician, and I would like to learn the technique for how to play the mute notes or what to do. None of my musical background every included that, so it not obvious.
Great idea! First saw them in Banana Pancakes. Had to Google to learn what they were.
