So over the last week, I have kept to it and have practiced my bass guitar for at least twenty minutes a night. I have seen some minor improvement but more of a wall with with the only way to climb it is hard work and diligence.
an example of a typical study routine:
- Warm up (basic fretwork doodling) — more on this later
- Scales (concentrate on a type of scale don’t go to fast work on perfection not speed)
- Arpeggio (again not to fast, keep up a normal pace and focus on fretwork and the tones)
- Song -pick a song that you enjoy and practice it in parts, work on the chorus until you can play it perfectly then move on. make sure you listen to the song and take your time with it, breaking it down into parts makes it easier to see the big picture and it is not as daunting, make sure you take note of the timing, listen to the drums and try to get a feel when and why the guitarists do flourishes in their music.
