Chromatic Acrobatic – Practice Hack

Chromatic approaches can be extremely effective to add spice to an otherwise “inside” bassline. In this episode, “Chromatic Acrobatics 2” I demonstrate a cool riff that you can use to shed your technique, too. Rapid fire 16th notes, extended fingerings and string crossings will be a challenge at first. But I break it down into small bite size pieces, and slow it down to allow you to get it under your fingers until you’re ready to bring it up to full speed. Add this to your practice routine, it’s absolutely worth it. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
