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.

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.

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-----------|

EDit: These are 16th notes

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