Need some help

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by terms bassist, May 7, 2001.

  1. I've been playing bass for 3 years now, and though my fingering is really good. and my picking hand is hard and fast. I want to expand my ability beyond just Rock. Does anyone out there know any good techniques or styles of music which can enhance my ability and teach me some good scale patterns and stuff, besides Blues that is(not my thing). and I'm also having a bit of trouble trying to combine my Rock learnings with Funk/slap and popping style (sort of like the incubus bassist and Billy Gould from faith no more). you see I finish slapping and stuff, but it takes me a good beet or so to get my picking hand back into position to play the Rock Riff's, is there anyway I could get faster at this.
