Practice log / record - what do you write?

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by TheDude, Sep 25, 2003.


  1. I was just wondering... how many people keep a log / record / notebook of their practice routines?

    I'd like to start one, but I don't really know what should go in there. I figured you could just write down what you did... But then I thought, maybe there's a better way. What do the talkbass players write in it? How do you organize it?

    A second question - how do you know what to practice next? :)

    Use a key/legend system so you don't have to get too verbose. Keeping a log is a good idea, but you don't want to be spending time on it that you could be spending actually practicing. :)
     
  3. I generally record all of my practice sessions using a PXR4 digital recorder (it's very nice!). Then an hour or more after the practice I kick back and review the session.

    I find that it really does help with my keeping proper time and it definitely points out errors and problems.
