okay, point taken, that was just a little vague...more or less tabs, and stuff to help playing in general. I know a lot of it is just practice and taken the time to do it, but it'd be nice to start something with a half-assed idea of what im doing, ya know?

luciodeath 08-10-2007 02:20 PM

download that book i posted, check that thread i posted.
and tri taking a look at the bass foruns of www.ultimate-guitar.com
there are always sticky topics about theory and exercises.

no problem bro, I'll post some more links.. might just throw up my 'guitar bookmarks' folder.. there's some badass linkage in there

Does anyone here have any lessons for two-handed tapping (like the last song on the Element album)? I'd love to get to know it more. I've learned Between The Buried And Me - "Breathe In, Breathe Out" which is really fun (I'll upload the tabit file if anyone wants), but that's about it. Any info would be appreciated.

This one is pretty fun to learn, it's a good exercise I think.
It helped improving my 2-finger tapping, which I think is fun as hell!
I had some links with other tapping exercises, but I lost them due to a crash...not sure what the adresses were,
but I'll post them as soon as I remember 'em.
Sorry if I didn't help you with that link.

EDIT: I'll just post the whole exercises-section off of Frank Schiphorst's website.
Lots of good exercisesm such as tapping, sweeping, picking exercises, etc.
Click 'Tabs' for these exercises I'm talking about.

Symmetric Scales and Arpeggios
 
Here are some symmetric scales/arpeggios in various patterns that I wrote out today. Make sure to play these descending as well as ascending. Hope I didn't put too much here :)
PHP Code:

This is the half-whole scale (in C), also known as the diminished scale.  If you start on the second noteit is the whole-half scale.  The scale has a really cool sound and seems to be commonly used in some jazz-fusion and metal bands like MartyrBlotted ScienceVuvretc.  It works really well for soloing over diminished chord progressions.  Listen to the solo in Martyr's Perpetual Healing for an example of the diminished scale in action.
|------------------------------------------8-9-11-12-||
|----------------------------------8-10-11-----------||
|---------------------------8-9-11-------------------||
|-------------------8-10-11--------------------------||
|-----------9-10-12----------------------------------||
|-8-9-11-12------------------------------------------||

This is an interesting way you can play the scale using string skipping.
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|---------8-10-11----------10-11-13----------11-13-14----------13-14-16----------14-16-17----------16-17-19--||
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|-8-10-11---------10-11-13----------11-13-14----------13-14-16----------14-16-17----------16-17-19-----------||
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||

Same thing, but using the G and E strings.
|--------8-9-11---------9-11-12----------11-12-14----------12-14-15----------14-15-17----------15-17-18--||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|-8-9-11--------9-11-12---------11-12-14----------12-14-15----------14-15-17----------15-17-18-----------||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||

This is the whole tone scale (in A).  I'
ve heard MartyrBlotted Science, and Gorod use it to very interesting effect.  Listen to the solo in Gorod's Hidden Genocide for a great example of this scale in action.
|--------------------------------------11-13-15-||
|-----------------------------10-12-14----------||
|---------------------8-10-12-------------------||
|--------------7-9-11---------------------------||
|-------6-8-10----------------------------------||
|-5-7-9-----------------------------------------||

Another way to play the scale.  It takes less movement but covers fewer notes.
|-------------------------5-7-9-||
|---------------------6-8-------||
|-----------------6-8-----------||
|-----------5-7-9---------------||
|-------6-8---------------------||
|-5-7-9-------------------------||

A string skipping pattern for playing the whole tone scale.  Very simple.
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|-------5-7-9--------7-9-11---------9-11-13----------11-13-15----------13-15-17----------15-17-19--||
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
|-5-7-9-------7-9-11--------9-11-13---------11-13-15----------13-15-17----------15-17-19-----------||

Similar to the last, but this covers all the strings.
|---------------------------------------------------9-11-13-||
|----------------------------------8-10-12-------------------||
|--------------------6-8-10----------------8-10-12----------||
|-------5-7-9---------------7-9-11---------------------------||
|-------------6-8-10-----------------------------------------||
|-5-7-9------------------------------------------------------||

Ah, here we are.  The Dim7 arpeggio.  This is used (and abused) by countless death metal (and deathcore) bands.  Necrophagist'
s Foul Body Autopsy is pretty much an exercise in this arpeggioso listen to that if you're not sure what this is.  Here it is in A.
|-------------------------11-14-||
|-------------------10-13-------||
|--------------8-11-------------||
|---------7-10------------------||
|-----6-9-----------------------||
|-5-8---------------------------||

Here'
s a cool string skipping pattern for the dim7 arp.
|--------------------------------
8-11-||
|----------------------
7-10-----------||
|-------------
5-8-----------8-11------||
|-----
4-7---------7-10----------------||
|---------
6-9-------------------------||
|-
5-8---------------------------------||

These last two are some cool patterns that can be repeated using this arpeggio.
||-----------------------------||
||
o---------4-7-10-7----------o||
||-----------------------------||
||------
4-7----------10-7------||
||
o---------------------------o||

5-8-------------------11-8-||

Thanks, hope this helps somebody!

Im posting here some bass excercises/Warm ups I have posted in the forums before in random threads, also in the Death/grind bassists group, posting them here for group outsiders. Most are in Gp5 format, others in Pdf

I've never opened this thread before, but there is some useful shit in here. I just ran through all the exercises on the first page. Ive seen a lot of them before, but i havent been in lessons in a couple months, so I'm rusty as hell, and when I was in lessons I was more about musical stuff than technical stuff.

I havent read the whole thread, so I dont know if theres already one in here/the same one id post, but I have a pretty good finger dependency practice somewhere in my passitino notebook from lessons, I'll definitely post it some time when I'm not about to go to bed.

PS I suck balls at rolling fingers from fret to fret and keeping a strong, clean, sound. Does anyone know any tricks to that type of stuff?

EDIT: Froren. I just got to your post on this page. Can you give me an example of a song that used the whole-tone scale? Cause generally that is a very difficult one to use and is reserved for the dream sequence passages in movies, as far as I know.

that actually helped a lot, cause i missed the T, and I was wondering how the fuck you got that stretch in there haha.


And reading the Polyrhythm article made me understand it a lot better, and realize I've done stuff like that, like playing quarter note triplets over a 4/4 beat on a metronome in class. This thread is useful, bring it back.

SlipkyesBass 11-20-2008 02:15 PM

I couldnt agree more with nunstampede! btw the ebook about bass that was posted earlier, the link is dead. Care to upload it again please?

Code:

---5---2---5---2---5---2---5---2---5---2---5---2------

-2---5---2---5----------------------------------------
-----------------2---5---2---5------------------------
---------------------------------2---5---2---5--------
------------------------------------------------------

This is a pretty good exercise for both string skipping and finger independence. You hold your 2nd and 3rd fingers on the 3rd and 4th frets of the B string and use your 1st and 4th fingers to play the notes without moving your other two fingers.

You can also hold down your 1st and 4th fingers on the 2nd and 5th frets (on B) and use your 2nd and 3rd fingers. That looks like this. I am horrible at this one though.

Code:

---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3------
------------------------------------------------------
-3---4---3---4----------------------------------------
-----------------3---4---3---4------------------------
---------------------------------3---4---3---4--------
------------------------------------------------------

Also try anchoring your two fingers on different strings, etc.

here is a really great article about various substitutions that you can make during your comping and soloing if you are into jazz/improvisation

Is Mabel's Fatal Fable's main lick as hard as I think it is? I'm having a shitting day on guitar and for some reason I tried to learn that (smart thing to do when you have a shitty guitar day huh?) and I feel like shit, lol. How clean and fast JB plays it is insane.

Easy answer. Jason Becker is inhuman.
