Hey guys. I've been rooting around this area of the forums for a little while looking at various 'correct' ways to practice this and that, and I have one I'd like to submit for review. I am a pretty new (<1 month) bassist, so naturally I am pretty slow around the fretboard when playing scales and arpeggios. In the process of trying to build speed with solid technique, I have sort of wandered onto this approach: 1. I select a tempo on the metronome. Normally I start at around 60bpm. 2. I play through the scale from top to bottom on the four strings (I play from the major seventh through the next octave fourth on a major scale 'box' for example) followed immediately by all the notes in the arpeggio from top to bottom. If what I played was PERFECT, I make a mental note and do it again. If THAT one was perfect, I do it once more. Once I have played the scale/arpeggio perfectly three times in a row I bump the metronome up by 10bpm. 3. If at any point I mess up, even in the slightest, I make a mental note of that and start over at step 2. 4. If I screw up three times in a row, I will drop the metronome tempo by 10bpm and start again from step 2. I was just wondering if those of you with more experience think this is a pretty decent system to use for building some technique with speed. Thanks!
