One-Finger-Per-Fret in the Lower Register (TT#7)

Lower Register Fitness: one-finger-per-fret

Tips for Getting Your Fingers in Place

Some bassists have a bit of a hard time getting the one-finger-per-fret position going in the lower register of the bass. I received a few questions in that regard so wanted to espouse on the topic a bit more. Some even suggest to stretch or take other measures to coax the hand into submission. I think any kind of forceful activity typically backfires. The solution lies in a relaxed posture and in experimenting with the right angles. I have an exercise for you that allows you to take the lower register step by step in a relaxed way.
