Hi all, great forum! I'm a guitarist of 12 year switching to bass because I've always thought it looks interesting, challenging, and the demand for bassists around here is pretty high. Anyhow, this is the 3rd time I've tried this, and I want to do it right, I'm getting some personal instruction and taking my time. The last 2 I just wimped out and used a pick when playing. I have a problem with my right arm where the muscles are always contracted, and thus are a bit weaker, and slower to react. I think i can overcome it because I can strum and pick on my guitar pretty well after so many years becasue its all muscle memory. Anyone have any good reccomendations about exercises specifically for strengthening and muscle memory?
