GUEST,Vixen @ work Bluegrass bass runs (26) RE: Bluegrass bass runs 04 Feb 02


Mted and Norton1--

Thanks for the tips...I don't have time for lessons at the moment--come summer when the semester's over, I will. For now, I'll just play my bass runs real s-l-o-w, carefully watching my right hand to make sure the pick is headed for the string I'm fretting with my left. I try to visualize the string as a connector between my left and right hands, but my right hand continues to float around vaguely somewhere near the sound hole. I guess it's the same thing for the right hand as the left: Practice, practice, practice, until the *muscles* (dense dummies that they are) learn where to go. My *brain* certainly has no control over my right hand!

V (frustrated, but persistent! [i.e. "stubborn"])
