Microthoughts. How to play relaxed (an alternative point of view)

How do I relax my hands when I play?

"What does it really mean to play relaxed? What should I do, or not do, to ease the tension in my hands that inevitably compromises my performance on the electric bass?"

Here is the good question sent to us by a student of the Contemporary Bassist Online some time ago. A "hot" topic, because it reflects on technique, endurance, speed... Maybe you've asked yourself this question too.

Tiziano Zanotti talked about this very issue in a live broadcast aimed at online course subscribers. After more than 30 years as a musician and teacher, Tiziano completely turns the question upside down and gives you an alternative point of view that you can put into PRACTICE right away.

Watch the video now, it is only 3 minutes but very important!

What do you think? Give it a try and let me know!

Obviously in the online course you will find the exact directions on the correct SETTING of the hands., which is the BASIS of everything for playing relaxed. As well as hundreds of other hints and exercises on how to improve your skills on the electric bass.


Finally a new chance to take the First Level Contemporary Bassist Online course. Sign in here ➡➡➡ https://corso-online.bassistacontemporaneo.it/volume-1-easy-way.

Basically, lessons 1-25, which are the ones related to Volume 1, turn into a monthly subscription that gives you access to the videos as you go along. We started on June 1, 2021 with lessons 1-2, then publishing a new lesson every 15 days.

You will find 20 to 30 videos per month, depending on the class, for a total of more than 350 videos that will be released over a period of about 1 year (perfect for those who are very busy and need more diluted content over time).

The videos will not expire but will always remain available during the term of your subscription , and you can watch them again at any time. So you will be able to go back, review the lessons you have already done, as well as, of course, continue on the path at a very comfortable pace.

One video at a time, you will go on to build your personality as a musician and bass player by tackling all the subjects found in Volume 1 step by step.

We are waiting for you on board, log in here ==> https://corso-online.bassistacontemporaneo.it/volume-1-easy-way
