I have ambitions of being a gigging bassist. It’s my understanding that there’s an unwritten expectation that one be able to clearly play 16ths up to 120 bpm (edit: when I wrote this I mistakenly put 180), which would make sense as I look at more and more music I might like to cover. However, I can only get to about 100 bpm with my 16ths. I’ve been there for about a year. This is despite having done “rhythm pyramids” or some variation for about that same time (though when I was messing with guitar before I became enamored of the bass again, I had hit this same wall). Anybody have any advice for increasing my speed? Do some people hit this wall and stay there? Can I get by playing gigs at that speed? For perspective, I’m 6’ 5” with huge hands. Been playing guitar or bass for the past 21 years.
