Warming Up Exercises

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by BenJanning, Aug 2, 2012.

  1. Do you warm up before you play? What do you do?

    I play chromatic scales ascending and descending and make sure to hit every note on the bass. Then I play a simple slap rhythm, moving an octave shape up and increasing the speed gradually.

  2. I usually just fiddle around for a minute or two with a nonsensical bassline, or I'll play a Rush bassline I've heard in the past. That's the extent of my warmup exercises. Funny, but I've never had a problem with my fingers or my wrists. Maybe I'm just lucky or blessed that way.
