Re: Pat Petrillo here!
i just spent a wicked half hour practicing double bass (i'm not a double bass player but i want decent facility in the basics eventually) to your warm up 2 :''5-5-3''
i used it asthe foundation for a call and answer exercise. i played
5-5-3 - 5-5-3 on my hands and then on my feet in the next two bars and so forth for about 5 minutes at one tempo (started at 100bpm)
then i moved on to 5-5-5-5-3-3 without stopping and did the same thing for 5 minues and then i just upped the tempo by ten and continued.
it was great fun and i saw improvement. i think i'll work this one twice a week into my routine.
