Hello all, I have recently (in the last week) got back to playing music after a 5 year brake. I am looking for a good practice routine to get my chops back up to par. A little background on my playing, I have played music on and off since I was 6 starting with the Violin, then moving to the clarinet, bass clarinet and finally the contra bass clarinet. In High school I also picked up the bass guitar. From there I moved to the double bass in my early twenties. I played for years in Rockabilly and bluegrass groups. Now after my 5 year break I was asked to join up as a alternate bass player for a gypsy jazz group. I am finding my chops are weak at best and my right and left hand work are both sloppy. Knowing myself, I know that playing with other people will force me to progress faster than just practicing at home but I also feel I need to develop a good routine at home and for once am at a loss of where to start. I have gone through a bunch of the threads on here but am feeling a bit overwhelmed with the options and suggestions. Thanks.
