How do you structure your practice sessions? In the few lessons I've managed to take, I keep asking the instructor about how and what to practice and all he says is "Hey try this slap lick!" I've heard so many times that bad practice can be worse than no practice, so what makes GOOD practice? As for the bass teacher and his slap licks, slap is all well and good. It's a technique I plan to work on, I'm just not to the point that I believe I'm ready to focus on it yet. First, I'd like to learn some theory so that I know what to slap within a given progression.
