Odd Time Exercise For Dexterity
#BASSNATION this week I’m bringing you an arpeggio/scale exercise in the key of A major (and minor!). It is in the 5/4 time signature so it will feel a little different. This exercise will really get your hand stretching and burning as you bring it up to speed, but REMEMBER….always take all of these exercises at your own pace. I say it over and over again but speed is secondary to playing your notes clean, clear, and precise!

Cool exercise , I have been playing this on my old acoustic bass then swapping to my electric 4 , high to low action great for strengthening the fingers 😀👍🎄
That is an awesome technique to use! I used to do the same thing with two different basses also with an upright bass🤘🏾
This is cool. I’m getting creative adding a 9th then walking down. The last 4 notes are 16th notes and also working on my double thumb tech. at the same time…Nice burn on the fingers! Lol thanks D!!!
I’m a new proud citizen of the Bass Nation. Daric, you’re doing an amazing work here and it’s always a pleasure to discover your lessons.
As you’re gonna hear, I’m a beginner (been playing for around 6 months…) and this is the first video I ever dare to post…
Well, enough excuses, I’m hungry for advice ! Here’s my try on this super cool exercise
Hey Man! Welcome to the Bass Nation! Awesome job on this! Just watch out for the position of your fretting hand. Seems to be a little too curves and can eventually cause some problems, other than a that great job! How long have you been playing ?
Thank you so much for your precious advice, I will work on it carefully.
I’ve started to play bass last august.
