I am quite the novice bassist. This is true. I am SICK and TIRED of my "practice" consisting of me trying to play the tabs from my favorite songs. I know that i may be shunned by the real anti-tabites for using tabs, but i realize that tabs just arent helpful.. They suck as a matter of fact. I just want to know what i can do to improve myself as a player now? What can i do? Scales? Chords? Neither of which i know ANYTHING about. Any suggestions of how i can learn my scales? hopefully i can learn some new practice techniques that will make me a bit more skilled.. Thanx People.
