Make Your Own Bass Guitar Technique Exercises

You could buy my Creative Bass Technique Exercises book and you definitely should download my free The Bass Guitar Resource Book.

They both contain loads of really useful bass guitar technique exercises.

But, even better than that would be if you can take control of your own practice and your own technical improvement.

How do you do that??

You learn what main bass techniques you need to know and then you devise a few technique exercises based on your level right now and what you want to learn.

This video lesson will show you exactly how to do that.


The Best Bass Guitar Exercise Ever

I filmed a lesson about an amazing bass technique exercise a few weeks back and the PDF is below. I really recommend you learn this! There's so much you can do with it including:

  • improve your technique
  • strengthen your ear
  • learn modes, triads, arpeggios, and scales
  • write bass lines

It's an all round gift of a bass exercise.


Useful Bass Guitar Shapes For Technique Exercises

You can literally use any shape or scale you want but here are a few that I used in the lesson:

I hope you get something from this lesson. Bass technique should be right at the top of your list for daily practice.

If you do want to buy my technique exercise book, here it is!
