Get a teacher. But not just any old teacher, a really ****ing good teacher.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

^Louis Armstrong invented the term, it basically means skill or technical ability.

Anyway, I really recommend getting a teacher, at least for a time, if you're serious about getting areal practise routine.

Learn how to do something then

Iduno, two handed tapping? slap/pop fill? past the 12th fret melodic lead? grind technically along the lowest frets? harmonics solo? synth pedal?

If you need to work on your bass chops, WORK on them.

practice finger exercises incorperating scales, arpeggios and modes in 2 octaves. making sure to play each note clean and in time increasing the tempo every few minutes
practice a specific technique you wish to learn (tapping, slapping, double thumping, chords) using similar exercises as stated about
practice a song that will challenge your playing ability (refer to the songs to learn thread stickied at the top of the forum if you don't know what song to go for)
rinse and repeat
cool down period practice scales at a slower tempo to cool down

if u want to get chops goin no better way tan chromatic scale on all strings. Its wat i do.


and if you choose to play music that doesn't solely revolve around chromaticism? theres a reason scales and modes are important in any good practice regime
