Playing What You Hear
#BASSNATION In this week’s lesson we’ll be talking about playing back what you hear, whether this is from a song or something you have in your head. This is definitely something that takes time to develop for many people but there are specific practice techniques you can utilize to teach your brain, ears, and fingers to work in sync. Come along for me on this ride to see what I do to work on my ears and hopefully you can pick up some good strategies to develop your ears!

This a great way to refresh your ideas and playing
Absolutely, I sometimes go back to this method when struggling at times
Hi Daric!Thank you for the great lesson!I practice my hearing every day a little with a app, but it is really hard to get my hearing to the fretboard
but it is a lot of fun!
by the way the song you mentioned from the pitch course ist called the wedding march from the composition: a midsummernight dream written by Felix Mendelsohn Bartholdy.Here goes my classical training as a timpanist….I don’t want to show off, but you mentioning you wanted to know…..greetings from Germany
That’s awesome! Thanks for the reference! Never knew that 👌🏾😎
So you are phrasing from the modes , but letting your ear guide you?
Hey Frederick, thats part of it. Once I experiment with the different notes and combinations of the mode then I start to develop phrases that I like to hear
I love the lesson, I had to learn this on my own years ago before the internet.
Thank you for this, ear training, I will say, is my biggest struggle, but I’m working on hearing and recognizing intervals! Good stuff ✊🏾
Awesome! My pleasure!
