    Hey people.. I just wanted to know if there are any good little short songs I could play for practice of my fretting hand.. I've just started out playing bass about 6 months ago, and I haven't found any just slow and tricky songs to play.. Please respond.. Thank you in advance..

  2. Play Slow.

  4. Disco Inferno - seriously !!! If you start on your pinky on the E string, you can play the whole lick without changing position.

    It's a great cross string exercise.
  5. Money!

    Try "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" by The Animals. The main riff is fun to play.

    I find it easier to play using two fingers on my picking hand, btw.
  6. My warm up is Beethoven's Fur Elise.

    I can put it text and e-mail it to you if you want.

    I should submit it to the BTA.

    Well don't go through that much work, can you tell me a place to find it?
  8. fufu, it was a Pain in the @$$ to find that song in TAB. You could probably find it in half a dozen places in notation, though.

    It's cool, tough, I'll probably just scan it and e-mail it to you as a (somewhat large) jpg file.

    PM me with your e-mail address if you want it.
