You’re in for a fun time this lesson. I’ve got a killer bass workout to show you that’s pretty epic! It’s just as useful for rank beginning bass players as it is for seasoned pros – there’s a version of this exercise that will work for everyone.
And if you want a seriously monstrous bass workout or even a killer bass warmup, you can go through every different version of the exercise.
The thing I like most about this bass exercise is that it gets you playing all over your fretboard in different ways as well as helping you work on mastering one of the building blocks of music – the major chord scale.
Not only that, you can use these exercises to bolster your technique, work on your hand coordination, string-crossing, general hand strength and dexterity – the uses for this bass workout are only limited by your imagination.
As far as how to practice these bass exercises, it’s up to you. Obviously, if you’re still a beginner, you’re probably not ready for the advanced level of the exercise – and that’s fine!
Simply start with the first version and work from there. I’d recommend starting nice and slow – ideally using a metronome and making your notes as long and as beautiful as possible.
Remember to stay relaxed as well! You don’t want tension to cause any physical issues for you.
If you’re more of an intermediate or advanced player, you can still use the beginner level exercises. In fact, I encourage it! You can use the beginning levels as a bass warmup before sinking your teeth into the more complex versions of the exercise.
All the same recommendations still apply though; use a metronome, nice long notes, and stay as relaxed as you can.
