"THE MONSTER" bass technique exercise (can you hack it?)

Published February 16, 2019 in Technique

Ok, I'll come clean...

The technique exercise in this lesson is a total beast... so prepare yourself. It's not for the fainthearted.

The good news is, I'm also going to to show you a simpler version of the exercise too, so if you're not quite ready for the "The Monster" yet, I've got you covered!

There's a heap of stuff both of these exercises are going to help you with, but here's a quick snap shot for ya:

  • They'll help with your fluidity on the entire fingerboard.
  • They'll help you identify whether there are issues with your current plucking hand technique.
  • They'll help you to cross multiple strings.
  • They'll even help you understand some theory at the same time (win!)
