String Crossing/Skipping

In the previous course we covered the basic alternate picking technique across all four strings of the bass - hopefully by now you are comfortable with the mechanics of this technique. Of course, not all basslines move neatly from string to string and you won’t always have the luxury of starting on a new string with a downstroke. In fact, you will often be required to play only one note - or maybe three notes - per string, meaning that the next down or upstroke will occur on a different string. To become fluent with the plectrum it is very important to become comfortable crossing strings in this way and this video course is devoted to helping you do just that.
