nothing beats good ole practice
but try to play an upright, if that wont build your strength than nothing will.

Playing bass will make your hands stronger, so will jerking off every day.

Yeah and if you do it fast enough you can even help out your tremolo picking.

I imagine that would hurt. Probably a bad idea.

sixsicsix 2006-07-28 22:53

good, picks are a failed guitarists excuse not to practice proper bass technique

Seriously, stop. We know, you dont need to keep reminding us that the only thing that surpasses your elitism is your close-mindedness.

Theres a fine line, and passing judgements on players who you think are playing bass improperly is crossing it.

No, it's a fucking prefferance.

Cassius 2006-07-31 11:31

Fucking stop already. This thread is about building muscle in the hands. If you want to finish this argument hop back over to the "Pick bassists shunned by finger bassists' thread. If not, then stick on topic.

Valtiel 2006-07-31 20:04

You're right. For building hand muscles, ya cant beat one of these:

This is from an article on building stamina by Tony Franklin in GFPM taken from the book "Bass Secrets":

"Ex. 3 is a Jaco favorite, the 6th interval scale, which also helps develop dexterity"

|---------------------7--------9-10-------12-14-----|
|-----7-9---------10-----------------7-9--------10--|
|--------------7---------8-10------------------------|
|--8-------10----------------------------------------|


|------12-10---------9-7-----------------------------|
|---9---------------------------10-9-----------------|
|-------------12-10-------8-7------------------------|
|-------------------------------------10-8-----------|

It probably works better than coins. Although I do have a set of chinese meditation bell balls that warm up my hands nicely.
