A little while ago, sitting, bored, in math class, I began to think about my two favourite pastimes... bass (of course), and paintball! I've been 'balling for some time, even at a local tourney level a few times. Being a back player, I'm often required to move my fingers like blazing hell, stringing lots of paint at a high rate in order to pin people into their bunkers. This got me wondering: "damn! all that fast trigger walking is done with the same fingers I use to play the bass! There's got to be some sort of benefit to my fingerstyle technique, and the bass fingerwork probably helps with firing consistency..." I realized that fingerstyle bass and competitive paintball were a match made in heaven. I guess my point is that other activites could often foster better bass technique: any TB'ers (or TB paintballers???) have similar things that they do?
