Curious for your thoughts on how you manage practice time between exercises for technique and playing actual music. Part of this is the question of where the most value added work is and killing numerous birds with one stone. My curiosity derives from having limited time to practice and while away from the bass, contemplating how to best use my practice time to progress. My conundrum is that i wonder if i am killing multiple birds with one stone by practicing the music deeply instead of practicing technique exercises deeply. By playing the music, i am working on the technique to play it at the same time, right? At the same time, i for some reason get a kick out of running through technique based exercises for shifting, moving across strings, bowing, etc. Thoughts?
