Now that it’s the holiday season, it’s time to get better at bass! Follow these tips to become a better bass player during the short vacation time.
Practice Twice As Long
Take your daily practice time and double it. You can either turn that into 2 different times during the day or just one big mega-session. I avoid practicing too long because it is easy to get sloppy and stale when you are playing the same riff over and over and over.
Learn A Whole CD
This is something that not many players think about- Try learning every single song on you favorite CD. It will help you get into the bass player mindset and you can easily learn from just playing the riffs off of your favorite music.
Get Yourself A Gift
Don’t be afraid to spend a little coin on your own bass gear this break. What are the holidays for? Giving presents. And who deserves it more than you and your bass playing? Nobody!
Play Some Christmas Tunes
While they may be cheesy and a little agitating, learning some Christmas song riffs will put you in a good mood to spend some time with your family. You also may stand a chance at performing them in front of your family members.
Just keep in mind that family is very important while you are on break, and have fun. Come back a better bass player!
