Im going to be extremely low on time in the very near future and will only have about 2 hours a day to spend on my bass. I dont know why I never realized this, but my practice routine wasnt as good as it should be. Id practice here and there, whenever i had time, (unless I had to learn a cover then id make the time) any how, i think this missmanagement of time alotment is hindering me from being more proficient on my instrament. Im partial to Routine's 1 and 2 #1 gives me adaquate time on each aspect i mentioned, and lets me cover all but one of the things id like to practice. #2 only alots me only 15 minutes on each technique, but allows me to cover more of them. (Something dont seem right about only spending 15 minutes on something though) #3 would allow me ample time for stuff to sink in, but i wouldnt be able to cover as much material. Or once a week i could sub one in instead of practicing the regular routine I pretty much already know how Im going to do this, and pretty much posted this for others who are looking for decent practice routines. or dont know how to alot the time they use practicing. (this is what I plan to practice and ymmv as to what you practice) Routine #1 20 minutes-scales 20 minutes-arpeggios 20 minutes-site reading 20 minutes- walking bass lines (method book) 20 minutes-funk/fusion (method book) 10 minutes-slap/pop 10 minutes-tap total practice time 2 hours. Routine #2 15 minutes - scales 15 minutes - arpeggios 15 minutes - site reading 15 minutes - walking bass lines (method book) 15 minutes - funk/fusion (method book) 15 minutes - slap/pop 15 minutes - tap 15 minutes - 16th note fingerstyle funk technique total practice time 2 hours Routine #3 30 minutes - scales/arpeggios 30 minutes - site reading 30 minutes - walking bass 30 minutes - funk/fusion total practice time 2 hours.
