The exercise sequence in this workbook addresses the most ideal manner of physically pressing the strings on a bass guitar.
I could not find a comparable guide already available so I proceeded to write one.
By keeping its focus specifically on its subject, the whole matter of finger differentiation, independent control, strength and dexterity is dealt with, independent of other musical complexities.
As a result, students are then able to move on to note reading, note to fret location connection, inter-hand coordination and gradually all of the rest of the music symbols and movements encountered in a piece of music without the drag of hesitant, stumbling fingers.
As I mentioned in the description to “Early Fret Identification Exercises For Bass Guitar”, I routinely use this workbook and its companion from the start with my new guitar students. I have found that so doing handles these needs quite efficiently and in short order.
