Yesterday I played some piano and double bass. I didn’t practice electric bass as I had two back to back rehearsals/jams with two different bands. One on the four string and one on the six string. I also put my shoulder out after the second rehearsal at about 10pm last night. Probably from having a bass round my neck for almost 6 hours.
Piano practice (7.30am)
2 octave F major scale
Harmonizing F major scale with triads in root, 1st and 2nd inversion (chords and arpegios)
Harmonizing F major scale with 7th chords in root, 1st, 2nd and 3rd inversion (need to do more of this as the scale is new)
Bb blues (Kenny’ll make it from Jamey Abersold’s blues in all keys). Roots and 7th chords. Need to play this over and over and over and over and over again
Total time 30 mins
Bass practice (six string)
Walking bass — F blues, C blues My Funny Valentine 15 mins
5 min break
Maj, min, dom scales and arpeggios B string 154 bpm
5 min break
Walking Bass — My Funny Valentine, Blue Moon.
Total time 55 mins
Today I threw the cat out of the room when I practiced and let him in during my breaks. This was great. I actually practices instead of getting my hands and legs shredded and him sitting on the laptop and making it go nuts.
