My band just picked up a new bass player. He hasent been playing very long and ive noticed hes not very good with up strokes. And yes he plays with a pick. To all the bass players out there, do you know of any exercises I could show him to work on it? Thanks.

The spider riff from Master of Puppets by Metallica. The original is all downstrokes but if you play it with alternate picking it makes a good exercise.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Tell him to start playing all of his songs picking up for a while until he gets the hang of it, then he should be used to it and will be good at both down and up.
