When I had my bass my main time spent with it was just learning whatever song I wanted to. This was a some years ago. Lately, I've decided I wanted to restart playing bass. However, I think I should have a fairly basic practice routine instead of just playing whatever song I wanted to.

Should I just apply the same basic exercises I do on guitar to bass? (Practicing major, minor scales, proper fingering of notes, etc.)

Or would I need to make a fairly new practice routine (as I think I will have to spend time getting used to the finger picking and slapping again)?

(what you practice may be beneficial to me as well)
