Stuck in one area of the fingerboard? Watch this! (L#91)

in Licks

WARNING!... In this bass lesson I'm going to show you a 'KILLER AWESOMESAUCE LICK' to demonstrate how to use the different fingerings of each arpeggio and how this will help you to play over the entire fingerboard... LIKE A BAD ASS!

Have you ever wondered how bass players such as Janek Gwizdala, Gary Willis, John Patitucci and Matt Garrison seem to be able to play bass lines and solos up and down the fingerboard seamlessly?

What's the secret?

They have amazing visualization of harmony on the fingerboard.

The key to mastering your visualization of the fingerboard is knowing three different shapes for each of your fundamental arpeggios and then simply joining them together and playing 'through' the shapes.

Unfortunately it can be hard for bass players to understand how to play 'through' the shapes and therefore they keep getting stuck in one area of the neck.

Let's get in the shed!
