Talking Technique: Feeling Rusty?
So you haven’t gotten to touch your bass in a while. It happens! We all have those times where we don’t get time with our bass for extended periods. When we get the bass in our hands again, our gut instinct is to get all our fast chops back, but that’s not such a great idea. The way to get back into shape the fastest is to take it slow.
In this lesson, we go step by step to reconnect with the bass and get back on track. From physical stretches to right and left hand exercises, you’ll shake the rust in no time.
Today’s tip: use a good strap!
