right, i was just doing exercises on my bass for about an hour and i came to thinking about a new exercise to improve right hand fingering tehnique. then it hit me...drum style rudaments!! like doing left, right, left, left, right, left, right, right except using your fore and middle fingers as right and left. has anyone ever tried this before?? what do you guys think about it as an idea??
yes, i do these. I also use drum style paradiddles for exercises too. recently i have started using my pinky in these exercises too. so on my right hand i will do 1..2..3...4 to match my left, and then change to 1...3...2...4.... then 1..4...2...3.. etc. your left and right hand should match, so pikcys together etc.. pretty tough !
ooh that ones quite cool. iv been doing 1234, 2134, 2314, 4231 and things like that for long enough but only using my left hand. ill try that one =)
I can only do it very slowly, with maximum concentration. Of course i will get better with time..!
