If you’re doing the Beginner to Badass course, try this lesson after Module 6 or so. We don’t tackle flying fingers as directly in the B2B course, so this isn’t essential, BUT if flying fingers have been bugging you this would be good to tack on as bonus practice.

Have you found this exercise helpful?

This video has everything. Bass playing, violence, Gandalf, just everything

And the exercise is perfect for adjusting to fretless, even though one finger per fret is not a reality to me

Who else has been practicing this? I thought I had my pinkie under control… but then I started this :upside_down_face: whoops!

Really though, great exercise!

I have! I agree it is a great exercise, and a nice hand warm-up too.

Love this exercise! It totally enforces the use of simandl (micro-shifting) for me in places. My hands just can’t make the jump the the 6th fret without sliding a bit. Right now I think my top speed is about 165 bpm with this exercise.

Yep, I did set up a post but got the timezone wrong I think. :stuck_out_tongue: (traveling in the UK and not sure how Discourse converted my input)

This is a great exercise. It’s become a standard part of my warm-up and practice routine.

At first glance I thought this exercise looks similar to the one my other bass teacher once gave me, which I really enjoy, never fully mastered, but still highly recommend. (#1 of this: Hadrien Feraud Bass Guitar Lesson - Warm Up Exercise. How Fast Can You Play It? | ELIXIR Strings - YouTube).
But, aha, it is not. Still wrapping my head around the walk downs, this is great and a lot of fun to play!
