Watch the Thumb Bounce Workout online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Funk Bass for Beginners
Alright, let's play through that exercise together with the click again. This time we'll bump up the tempo a bit, but you'll still really need to focus on getting the technique together and making sure you sound good. Listen to the metronome and try to divide your focus between trying to nail the timing and getting a great sound out of the strings. Take your time here and repeat the exercise as many times as it takes to be able to nail this exercise. If you're having trouble getting at this tempo, stop and move back to the slower tempo before coming back to this one. You'll make slower progress if you skip ahead to quick and don't take the time to make sure you're developing a solid technique, getting good tone, and playing in time. Don't move on until you have this down. See you in the next lesson.
