Right Hand Technique ( 3 fingers)


I would like to share with you the 3 fingers technique which I am trying to improve and apply.

The plucking concept is similar to that of playing on a classical guitar.

You can check out Bass players like Dominique Di Piazza and Damian Erskine for more applications and examples.

T - Thumb
m - middle finger
i - index finger

Practice slow and gradually increase the speed.

Have fun!

Playing Chords on Bass (3 positions)


We know that a basic chord is formed by 1 3 5.

For example, the notes in an A chord will be A (1) C# (3) E (5).

I have tabbed out three different positions of an A chord.

Some of you will know them as inversions.

Remember the shape and shift it around to play other chords.

Hope this is clear.

Have fun.

G Major Scale Exercise


The exercise below is an alternate way to practice the G major scale.

Sometimes when you improvise in the key of G, this pattern can be quite useful.

This will help you to be more familiar with the fretboard.

You can practice playing backward as well.

Have fun
