Single String Scale Bass Technique Exercise

I haven't played bass for two weeks and I'm feeling rusty!

This bass guitar exercise was the first thing I reached for to get my coordination and touch back and I want to share it with you.

By the end of the lesson, you will have improved your:

  • stamina
  • speed
  • accuracy
  • touch
  • hand shifts
  • fretboard knowledge

I'll also show you how to get creative with an E Major scale and a drone and drum beat.
