Subject: RE: Practice tip, odd but verrry effective.
Hi Peter. Maybe I'd better mention this once again.....This thread has NUTHIN' to do with playing in open tuning. It's about learning right hand technique in order to in REGULAR tuning. The open D tuning mentioned is merely to free one up from having to think of two things at once.

Yep, to learn bass runs effectively, rather than in a really time consuming and seemingly never-ending process, nail that right hand. The above flatpick excercise should help. Maybe I'll start a thread with some specific bass runs in a couple of days.
