I'm a bedroom bass player I usually just learn song or jam to a drum beat.... most of time I play everyday for at least 30 mins to and hour more if no one is home so I can really crank it up

Haha well depends, I split my time between nailing the originals for my bandmates, working out songs by ear, playing solos that sound shit, groovin', rockin' and playing a lot of guitar to write parts for my guitarist .

An hour or more a day. It depends on whether I have practice or rehearsal as well.

And remember its not quantity but quality of practice that is important. Thirty minutes of focused practice is going to be more beneficial than 1 hour of messing about on your instrument.

Mess around for an hour our so, practice for an hour or so, each multiple times a day.... So around six hours.

I can write a coherent tune ... But 3/4? I play rock, not polka.

I try to practice an hour a day, but usually at least half of that is just woodshedding. Hopefully my class schedule will allow more practice time next year.

I spend usually 2-3 hours a day with a bass in my hands, but a lot of it is lazy practising, a habit I should really get out of. I don't have much of a routine, spend most of my time either noodling over a drum machine and familiarising myself with scales, or playing/figuring out. Currently spending about an hour a day learning to read sheet too.

i have been spending more time with guitar lately. ill still pickup my bass about 3 -5 times a week and dick about with it. but its mostly acoustic guitar stuff that I do nowadays.

About an hour each day for bass and half hour for guitar.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
#12
About an hour or every two days or so. It's getting harder to play lately since my carpel tunnel acts up a lot.

So I have to rest my hands for a few days or wake up with that horrible burning feeling and numbness.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

#14
I don't play an awful lot, I wouldn't consider myself a bassist, I learn the songs I need to for the band I play bass for and before a gig or something I'll run scales or do some Jaco Pastorius sorta stuff to get myself into shape for playing.
#15
Practically everyday. If I dont play at home, I play at school and vice versa.

Taking guitar lessons right now so my focus is elsewhere, the basses get picked up maybe for an hour or so a week. More if I get invited to jam and they need a bass player.
#17
I try to spend about an hour playing every weekday, but weekends can vary. If I have money then I will probably do something else but I always try to make time to play. Today I had no money, so I literally have done nothing else today except for playing bass and walking my dog. DAMN YOU CREDIT CRUNCH!!!

meh with school I only get time for about a half hour,but I do always pick it up and play it for 30 seconds at a time every time I look at it....

Depends on the mood I'm...

If I'm not feeling it I'll jackaround for 30 min or so and call it quits. But if I'm feeling it I go as long as I can, before my girlfriend threatens to throw my bass down the stairs
Quote by MetlHed94



Well played, sir, well played.

It varies. I typically play at least a little bit every day. I keep guitars in several rooms of my house - next to the couch, computer, etc. So, if I get the urge I can just pick one up and play. Some days I play almost all day and I'll play everything I hear, down to commercial jingles. I never go more than a week without playing. Gives me withdrawals.
