Watch the Lesson 1: Warm-up & Stretching online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Funk Bass for Beginners
It's critically important to warm up and stretch before you play your bass. Just like an athlete, playing a musical instrument is a physical activity. Work on creating some of your own warm up routines as you develop. In this lesson I'll give you some great exercises and stretches to loosen up your body and get ready to play without pain and without any strain. Keep it loose!
