Hi Tony,
Very good work on those lessons !!
I’m just wondering if your left foot is laid on something to get your leg
I can’t find a confortable position otherwise

It reminds me of the classical guitar approach.

Best bass teacher on YouTube. A lot of teachers talk in a condescending
tone and talk to you like you’re a little kid and know nothing about music

Hi Bassboost. Good point. Everything you practice is technical one way or
another. I have a very strict practice schedule where I work on many things
from, Arpeggios, Modes, Jazz Standards, BeBop etc. I always as a rule
practice in a very musical creative way. When I practice technique my goal
is to train my fingers to be free. If you practice different permutations
you break muscle memory habits so when you are practicing more functional
things you are a lot more fluent and free

NO excersize is a “bad” excersize! Quoted from Jaco!The Master! Developing
a Full Command of the Instrument is Vital, So that u can Forget the
techniqual aspect of the playing and instead Speak FREELY through the
instrument , without any limitations! These types of things are taught on
All instruments,All music styles, So why not on Bass? Great Lesson!

Practicing techniques that are purposely non-musical! That’s the opposite
of what Victor Wooten teaches, but I definitely admit to having ‘hackneyed’
habits/patterns I always fall into from having ingrained into my fingers

Hi Spider5604 well in my experience a lot of cats struggle moving to the
next level because there foundation and form has bad habits built into
them. Therefore simplicity in fundamental practice is hip It gets you to
the point without standing on your head So bring on the old it works.
