Please, how can one download these lessons?
Quick Questions. 2 Things:
1. How are you picking your triads ? [i.e. 1= index, 3= middle & 5 =index]?
Is it one finger picking? Does it matter?
2. I noticed the bass i bought doesnt have a lot of room and I know you taught us to anchor our thumb on the pickup under the strings but my picking fingers dont have a lot of room and sometimes hit the pickup?
While learning these triads you can pick them with alternating fingers. Eventually these triads will be played as chords which would be the next section. So to prepare you for that I played these triads with thumb-root, index- 3rd, middle- 5th
To answer your 2nd question, when you say “not a lot of room” I’m not exactly sure what your referring to.cold you possibly upload a pic or link of youths bass you have? Thanks
Professor Bennett, could you give me a suggested daily practice routine? Loving the lessons.
Sure, I would need to know where you are in your playing first you can easily upload a video of yourself playing in the “Video qna section” so I can get a general idea. everyone’s different so it would help me out a lot.
Ok. On it!
I’ve been practicing fretting exactly like this but because my 5th fret is an open G on a 5 string could I play the open string instead?
If you notice, every 5th fret that have is an open string, so my suggestion would be is to also play the open string when playing this exercise. But, I would NOT rely on the open string all the time because there are going to be times where the open string won’t be convenient to play versus a fretted note
Makes sense! Thank you I Appreciate it!!
Hi Derick, those fills played towards the end of this video where lessons can i put together to help me attain this desterity ?
Great question! Just a series of chromatic lines, arpeggios and triads combined.
I will link some exercises to help with concept .
