Hi, So I’m without a band again. For the second time in a few years, my (to my honest opinion very promising) band imploded due to being subordinated to my singer’s intense emotional life. Anyways, I’ve always been a lazy musician who practices mainly when I’m in a project and when I have deadlines. This time, I decided I’d try to keep in shape, and hopefully improve, by joining open mic events with a guitarist friend of mine, and also by practising different challenging covers. If I can discipline myself and practice on a regular basis, maybe I’ll start doing it properly with scales and everything. But for now, I’m only looking at ways to practice by playing fun lines. I thought I’d start this evening with Chasing Shadows by Deep Purple. That one has been on my “to try” list for 20 years, along with a couple Yes songs. But I was wondering if maybe someone would have other interesting suggestions for me. I’m looking for bass lines that are good exercises for technique (right and left hand, as well as pick), speed, chord changes, arpeggios, etc. Please bear in mind that I’m technically moderate at best. I’ve always played post-punk, grunge, trip-hop, etc.: I.e. very minimalistic genres as far as the bass is concerned. Even though I'm looking for a bit of technical challenge right now, I'm not especially fond of highly technical music in general. So I’m not about to attack Jaco Pastorius, Iron Maiden, Rush or Victor Wooten lines (I don't even slap!). Thanks for any input !
