Below is the table I’ve created on my local computer to house the pieces I play regularly on the Electric Bass.
The first column, Card, is special: As part of my practice, I assign each regular piece to a playing card in one of many decks. This way, if I want to be challenged / practice something randomly, I just draw from a deck and get playing. It is meant to keep me practicing more during practice time, and also to get me to play pieces I would otherwise forget about. I’ll talk more about that in another post sometime.
The collection presented here I made because it is all of the pieces I have learned to play for a band I am currently a part of. I’ll add to it soon, but I wanted to get this done first because of the fact that I play these pieces with others.
