Rx: Making the most of practicing.

In order to get the most out of a practice session on your bass, there are things that you can do to get your mind and body ready and what you can do to make things work in your practice. This lesson talks about some of them.

Specific exercises and concepts include:

  • physical centering exercises
  • stop bow
  • focusing on doing right action more than outcome

Stop bow looks like a useful exercise because it encourages you to take your time and work through:

  1. intonation
  2. shifts
  3. bowing

in a very conscious way before introducing rhythm.

There’s also some great use of juggling as a metaphor.
