Making Bass Exercises More Musical (and Fun)

In this video, I’ll be talking a bit about how I try and apply exercises in a more open and musical context (aka, have more fun with them). There are a few minutes of talking and then a lot of playing around with the ideas we’ve been covering for the past few weeks.

I hope you all get something from it!

Please get the conversation going in the comments and if you have any questions about anything bass or music related, please do shoot it my way at
