Well , not that extreme , but in any case the point of the thread is that I'm trying to develop a style of practice that fits me . Due to time constraint and college , I wont be able to dedicate much more 'idle' time on the bass , and neither to I want to since I dont like my present thing of holding the bass the entire day , and doing nothing productive with it . I've advanced quickly uptill here , inspite of the fact that I've just been a bass player for a bit over a month , I can play any major scale in any key at a decent , speed of 120 bpm (I can play them in set positions , not over the entire fretboard) . Started even making some improv's and such . I dont have much theory backing , besides the stuff I've learnt from the net which includes the concept of scales , keys , basic chord theory (Major , Minor , Dimnisheds , 7ths and how to form them) , how to make basslines and such , Intervals , and thats about it I would guess . I've not yet approached modes . I need to design an efficient practice schedule for daily use , and this is what I've come up with yet; Daily : 1 Scales ractice the scale of the key of the day according to Pacmans method . The daily pattern I plan is to be this : C-G-D-A-E-B-F#-F-Bb-Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-C....and so on . 2 Chords : Practice Chord progressions and Arppegios . I have no idea what I have to do about this section yet . Suggestions are appreciated to high heavens . 3 Practice physically challenging tech's , such as learning and improving right hand tapping . Improving right hand fingering , and being able to finger using three fingers , etc. Any suggestions of how to fix this section is appreciated too. I'll probably want to cap the entire thing at around 2 hours , with 1 hour of practice and 1 hour of noodling , but if you guys feel , I should change anything in this then let me know . Any suggestions that add to the above stated draft of my future practice schedule are appreciated . Thanks in advance . Cheers .
