Plucking Hand Workout For Electric Bass by Bernard Lackner… Have you ever wanted to play better? Have you identified the problem to be your plucking hand? Are the exercises that you already know just not giving you the results you want? If so, then this is the book for you!

Bernard Lackner has sat down and written a workbook with 200 exercises designed to improve your plucking hand technique! (And a shout out to Adam Nitti who edited this work)

Easy to read and very organized, we are given guidance in the areas of Quarter Notes, Eighth Notes, Eight Note Triplets, Sixteenth Notes, Sixteenth Note Triplets and Quintuplets. There are even some “Stick man” illustrations to encourage your efforts!

The key here is working with your metronome or drum machine and almost forgetting you even have another hand. I can even see doing these exercises with a “Pocket Picker” or ” Shred-Neck” while you are out and about.

Raul Amador serves as the Executive Editor of Bass Musician Magazine and is the Co-founder of V.I.E., LLC, publisher of virtual magazines. This dentist-by-day, Raul picked up the bass several years ago after a long hiatus from music. Born in Boulder, CO, Raul began playing guitar at a young age. By the time he moved to Texas at the age of 10, he was ready for his first gig with a local, junior rock band. After their first performance (and reviews), it was decided that he would study classical guitar instead. In 1970, his father took a teaching position in Puerto Rico and Raul moved with his family to the Caribbean. It was here that he began playing the cuatro and guitar with the Tuna de Cayey, a traditional Spanish group that has been together since 1964. During his 9 years as a member, he recorded over 11 albums and toured all over Puerto Rico as well as New York and the Dominican Republic. Tuna de Cayey is still actively recording and touring. Today, Raul is jamming with local groups in Portland and Vancouver and is hitting the music scene as Executive Editor with Bass Musician Magazine. He thrives in being part of a world-class team set on developing a virtual environment for professionals working in the field as musicians, clinicians and bass industry support as well as inspiring players just getting started.
