    This is a great exercise, and I have a very weak fourth finger. Also there are nice melodic motifs here which can be incorporated directly into playing. I notice again the incredibly rich bass tones you are getting alongside the clarity of the top mids. I can see that the bass is really good, but what are you running it through to get that lovely warm deep tone which I can NEVER seem to get!! Is it the GK combo? If I could achieve a sound like that it would inspire me to play better I know that. Please let me know and thanks for your great lessons.

      Thanks so much, I’m just running it through my preamp which is the GK plex but I also plug directly into my interface which also gives me a similar tone. But don’t let that stop you. I practiced for years with nothing to plug into at all! There’s a bunch of elements that requires a decent sound not only the amp or preamp. And I’ll give you guys the insider on all of those soon. Or at least what I use to create my tone. Glad this exercise is helpful to you. It’s one of my favorites

        Yes sure, I know there’s no magic formula or short cuts, and I’m not looking for them. I pay a lot of attention to the way I touch or pull or hit the strings, keeping my fingers right next to the bridge to keep it tight. I think that my Mexico Jazz Bass probably doesn’t have the natural deep bass frequencies coming through anyway. Anyway thanks for your reply, always an inspiration.
