Im wondering what you guys do every day to practice. On other words what routines do you go through every time you sit down to play bass. Every day I like to run through the modes of the major, melodic and harmonic minor scales. Then I try to do double octaves (ascending and descending of each) and If I can get around to it I try to do 3, 4, and 5 note coils as well as my scale tone thirds up to 13ths. I do all the excercises sequentially according to the cricle of fifths (c, g, d, a etc.). I also use a metronome for everything and I keep the bpm the same two days in a row and practice one day with my fretted and the next with my fretless and only then do I raise the bpm. I only recently started doing this because I really want to start doing some serious practice and although I dont always adhere to it I keep it pretty close. Another reason I did it is because I find that learning other peoples music doesnt get me very far or at least as far as I want to go. So what are your practice routines.
