Drill resources

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Peter McFerrin, Mar 7, 2003.

  1. I need some new drills to spice up my increasingly stale practice regimen. Are there any books or websites out there that just have hundreds of different exercises listed? I'm especially looking to improve the speed and cleanliness of my slapping and my left hand finger strength.

    Yeah, activebass has a lot of great lessons. I agree though, this is a lot of garbage there. A lot of people who are like "Hey I made this cool bassline" so they make some lesson out of a lame riff they made. I definatley suggest checking out the classical section. Lots of great info there.
