i've been playing the bass guitar for a while now and all i know right now is a result of my personal determination. Right now i play regularly in a church band and it's like most of what i do is just score out c.d.s or tapes anytime i want to practise on my own, i'm always at a loss. Mostly, all i do is a permutation exercise by gerald veasly then i try the spider exercise by Pattituchi. I always try to practise scales but i seem not to know what i should do. can someone please help me out. I'm tired of the same old routine.
