This is a video from Scott's Bass Lessons. And it is by far the best speed-building and shifting exercise I've ever worked. It had the peripheral effect of expanding my knowledge of the major scales across the fingerboard.
Work this into your practice time and your speed, technique, and improv is going to grow exponentially.
I grew up playing Blues and Punk in and around St. Louis.
After traveling a LOT, I settled down in Austin Texas where I play Worship
bass and study Jazz.I'm also a
bassist-at-large. So you'll see me around town playing with various Rock,
R&B, Blues, and Jazz groups. Keep your eye out for me.
