Hi all, I have bought the Hal Leonard Bass Fitness book and would like to practice those exercises on a daily bases. As part of my training plan so to say. Do you have any advice for me on how to approach this best? Apart from what is mentioned in the beginning of the book? I have a concrete question already. Should I leave my fingers always on the strings or should they hover directly above? Example: When I play ----1-2-3-4------, would it be better to leave the indexfinger on the first fret (still pressing the string) while I play the next note with the middlefinger and then leave index and middle on the frets (still pressing) and play the third fret with the ringfinger etc.? I was told that this would help to teach the fingers to stay close to the fretboard instead of criss-cross fidgeting around but at the same time is much more debilitating. Or better only press the string and fret which is actually needed for the current note and keep the other fingers away from the strings? Please apologize my humbling English, must be a PITA trying to understand what I mean. THX!
