Plucking Exercises for the Bass Guitar

Learn basic bass plucking exercises from musician John Sutton in this online guitar lesson from Howcast.


For bass plucking exercises we need to get comfortable plucking the strings by using that technique we talked about, dragging our fingers over the strings. But we can use this with a variety of different rhythms or anything else that you want to play to make it interesting for you. So you can do it by starting slow, maybe on one string, and then maybe speeding it up. And then you can slow it back down. But all of it will just be helping you to get comfortable. And that is basic plucking techniques.
