This exercise will help you build your
speed, and it is also a generic blues
bass line. It sounds very similar to
the "Woo Hoo" song on the Vonage
commercial, by the 5—6—7—8's.

A great thing about this exercise is that
you can move it anywhere on the fretboard,
and it will give you practice with bigger
and smaller frets.

One more thing: If you are playing this as
a blues bass line, or if you're just done
practicing it, there is an alternative,
very bluesy ending:

Enjoy, and good luck!
