In this second book from the Bass Gym series, you will find 101 exercises focused on arpeggios that will not just help you to improve your finger strength, dexterity and all-round control of the instrument but mainly your ability to play more melodic bass lines. Each set of exercises is designed to challenge you and push you towards achieving the next step in your bass playing. Whilst this book focuses on technique, I have kept the exercises musical and enjoyable to play. Going through the exercises routinely and methodically will produce great results in a reasonably short period of time. Previously unplayable passages will become a piece of cake and your band mates will be amazed how melodic your bass lines become. These short exercises are ideal as part of your warm up routine; before rehearsal, a concert or recording session. Complete beginners and seasoned professionals will both benefit from this book, whether you are 4/5/6 string player or even a guitar player. All exercises include tablature, recommended fingering chart and chord chart. I believe that this book will bring you closer to where you want to be with your playing.
