MarloweDK Releases Bass Gym App
MarloweDK has been teaching bass online for years by putting out educational grooves on his YouTube channel. Now he’s launched a new app to whip you into shape with daily exercises.
Bass Gym with MarloweDK lays out a ten-minute warmup/practice routine that builds your skills with five sections: arpeggios, endurance, rhythm, scalar, and technique. Each category has three levels of difficulty with four exercises in each for a total fo sixty exercises.
“You can practice the same exercises each day or choose a different one each time,” the bassists explains. “The BassGym app will keep track of your progress so you can monitor your improvement.”
The app has a built-in player so you can jam along with each excerpt. The player has a metronome or drum beat with variable tempo. In the options section, you can also double the time of the metronome or drum beat to make 16th notes into 8th notes or vice versa. This allows for breaking down more difficult exercises or building up ones you are more comfortable with. Finally, you can read the exercises either as tab or as animated notes on a bass fretboard.
Bass Gym with MarloweDK is available now for iOS devices through the App Store for $2.99.
