Lesson #8 The Importance of Daily Practice
Practicing is the key secret to your success on the bass guitar. In this video Lane On Bass will explain how it’s not all about sitting for hours on end once a week but rather taking a little time each and every day to practice what it is you’re working on and burning it not only into your mind but also into the muscle memory of your hands and fingers.
You’re picking up an entirely new skill, one that you more then likely have no previous experience in, so taking it slow at first is essential. There are few things to be careful of when you are particing, the most important of which is to avoid getting blisters on your finger tips. If the tips of your fingers are really starting to burn and becoming raw then it’s definitely time to sit the bass down for a couple of hours and go do something else. You can always come back to it but give your finger tips time to adjust. You’ll find that after about 3-4 weeks you begin to have some calluses on your finger tips which are far stronger and durable compared to your regular finger tips.
