In this episode of ‘Ask Geoff & Lauren’ we answer Rachel’s question about how to regain left hand strength after taking a break from playing double bass. This is such a good topic and one that I’ve struggled with a lot over the years. It always takes me a few gigs before I feel comfortable with the bass after taking time off. However I also feel more excited about playing with fresher ideas, so I’m a big fan of taking a bass vacation!
In the video I reference a blog post I wrote called 'What Can I Work on Whilst I’m Away from My Bass?'
