Hi All, I'm kinda 'new', I started bass 7 months ago, without any guitar/string experience prior. Took lessons from a great teacher for 6mo, and am taking a break for $$ reasons. I'm trying to lock down Uriah Heep's Easy Livin'. I can play the whole song, except for that 100mph backward scale. My right hand plucking 'plan' simply falls apart when I try to increase from 0.1mph. Not worried about the left hand; I know the major scale pattern and I can see the notes just fine. For the right hand, I start at the top, choosing which right-hand finger for each note. I try to use a rake on the string changes to get some more efficiency. But whenever I speed it up my right-hand fingers forget their job! Is my memory just garbage (I am almost 50) or is this the correct approach and it will come to me in time?
