How to find the Perfect Posture while Practising (L#158)

in Technique

If your anything like me when practising, most of the time you'll be sitting down. This makes total sense, as if we're going to be making any serious progress we're going to be spending a lot of time with our bass - and if we were to be stood up the entire time it could lead to various back problems. I can name countless bass players that have serious back and shoulder issues - this stuff is serious - so please don't take this lightly.

It's easy to assume that sitting down when practicing is simple, but it's actually quite deceptive. I've worked with countless students that needed to alter the was they were sitting. One little change can give you way more facility and freedom on the fingerboard - simply by altering the angle of your bass.

In this lesson I'm going to show you exactly how I make sure I've got the correct positioning and few cool tricks to help you do the same.

As always, see you in the shed...
