Warm Up Exercises For Bass Guitar
Many beginner bass guitarists often overlook the importance of doing finger warms prior to practicing on the
guitar. This is a very serious mistake that would really hamper the growth and long term development of their
guitar playing skills.
First of all, the lack warm ups for the hands and fingers would increase the chances of developing tendonitis
and repetitive strain injuries (RSI). Like the other muscles of the body, we do need proper warm ups prior to
strenuous activities to prevent injuries.
Secondly, warming up enables our fingers to hit high performance better and would make subsequent practicing
more effective and efficient. This would lead to better results and time saving. One other immediate benefit is
that guitar techniques and hand movements will become more fluid after warm ups.
