Bass Finger Exercises

Bass finger exercises are important to keep your fingers loose and increase your speed, reach and flexibility. The more bass guitar finger exercises you can incorporate into your warm-up before gigs or practice sessions, the better you will play. Below is one of my favorite finger exercises for bass guitar. You should start of the exercise at a slow tempo, and work up slowly until you can do this at high speeds. It is important to dedicate only one finger per fret, and master the finger-work before you increase the tempo. After you have mastered a faster tempo, try to do the bass finger exercise without looking at the frets or your fingers. It will take some practice, but you will give your fingers the best workout and improve your bass playing. This is very easy to incorporate into a 5 string bass as well. Just recognize the pattern of the exercise and adapt it to the 5-string bass.
