Quadruplets – Advanced Right Hand Technique
#BASSNATION in this week’s lesson I’m focusing almost exclusively on the right hand. Quite obviously we need to learn our notes, scales, arpeggios, etc but playing bass is also all about the rhythm! It’s really important to spend a lot of time on different right hand techniques as well to step up your playing. This is a more advanced technique but a really cool one I wanted to share. MAKE SURE TO TAKE IT SLOW! It’s more important to play precise than it is to play fast, never forget that!

Awesomeness ??????Thanks! Learned this at a Bass camp..but wasn’t ready? Will go re-visit and add it to my practice routine ????????
?? Shed time!
Great! It takes some time but it’s actually easier than it looks. Would love to see you and @Onebassplayer tackle this and post it in the forums!
Hi Daric! I try to get it. It works better than I thought (60 bpm), but sometimes my ringfinger will go first (before the middlefinger). It’s harder to keep the same level with each finger.
Yea, its a tough concept to get at first just because the way your fingers are programmed to move but a little practice will break you out of it! Especially to have the same dynamic range with each separate finger.
Hey aligatorman, I have the same issue! I am around 80bpm and can now do scales up and down the neck but my ring finger has some sort of Napoleon complex!!
I know exactly what you mean! I always say, the 4th finger is the weakest and the ring finger is the most stubborn. Its just everyone physical anatomy. But there will be more exercises to help with the isolation of both those fingers. Keep at it??
