hey everyone, ive been playing bass for 3 years now, been in a couple metal/rock bands, but i feel stuck.
i have the mechanics down on the bass, my right hand is in great form, im just having trouble with my left hand. i know the patterns of major and minor scales and also the 7 modes.
does anyone know of any good exercises that i could do that would help me use scales and modes to their full potential?
i've also thought that maybe its the style of music that i play that wont let me use these scales (metal), but then i heard rex brown from pantera and he's all over the place on his scales while still playing heavy music.
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
