Bass Lessons — Victor Wooten Thumb Exercise bass tabs


Td— Thumb Downwards
Tu— Thumb Upwards
Pi— Pluck With Index Finger
Pm— Pluck With Middle Finger

This Is A Great Exercise That I Saw On You Tube And Its A Really
Great Exercise For Slaps.

The first thing you do is take your thumb and (Much Like A Pick)
hit the note in a downwards motion and then take your thumb and
hit it in a upwards motion which will lokk like this

D—————————————————————————————————|
A—5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———|
E—————————————————————————————————|
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu

Then work this with a Pluck with your index finger like such.

A—5——5——5——5——5——5——5——5——5——5——5——5——|
E—————————————————————————————————————|
1 e a 2 e a 3 e a 4 e a
Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi

After that exercise throw in a pluck with your middle finger as well

G—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
A—5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———5———|
E—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
Tb Tu Pi Pm Tb Tu Pi Pm Tb Tu Pi Pm Tb Tu Pi Pm

If you work this with some scales it helps, but the main point
of this exercise is to learn how to play fast with out having the
need to use a pick.
