Bass Flashcards

Flashcards are widespread memory games used by students in disciplines as mathematics, language and music alike. You have a set of card covering a certain subject, in our case the names of the notes of the fretboard for each string. The idea is to learn the positions and names by heart in order to play fluently across the whole neck.

 

The Learning Game

       The Fretboard Quiz Game consists of twelve cards, each representing a step within an octave on one string, for example E root to E first octave on the E-string. The cards are included in this book. Print out the front back (question) and the results page (answer) and glue them together, laminate them and cut the 12 cards out with a pair of scissors.

       In the learning period, always keep the twelve cards in your pocket or bag. When you have a spare moment, e.g. riding in a bus or standing in a queue, produce a card and list the fret name of the selected flashcard for each string on the fretboard, e.g. from the G-string down to the B-string. When you get more experienced, you may simply ask yourself a random fret number, listing all the names on all strings.

       Finally, when you have a solid grip on the first octave, you must add the second octave, which happens to have the same names as the first octave, only placed 12 frets higher.

 

Playing the Notes

       It is equally important to play the notes on the bass as learning it by heart. The position on the fretboard should be connected to the name in your brain as second nature.

       Rehearse the names physically on the bass 30min a day, while playing the game at least 10 minutes a day in your pauses or spare time.

Drums Flashcards

       Flashcards are widespread memory games used by students in disciplines as mathematics, language and music alike. You have a set of cards covering a certain subject, in our case the names and drum patterns of the Rudiments. The idea is to learn drum patterns and names by heart in order to help playing the rudiments as second nature.

The Learning Game

       The Rudiments Quiz Game consists of 26 cards, each representing one of the 26 rudiments. The cards are included in this book. Print out the front (question) and the results page (answer) and glue them together, laminate them and cut the 26 cards out with a pair of scissors.

       In the learning period, always keep the 26 cards in your pocket or bag. When you have a spare moment, e.g. riding in a bus or standing in a queue, produce a card. Look at the number and name the drum pattern, for example “The long roll”.  Then you play the rudiment. Finally, look at the back of the card to see if you have remembered the drum pattern correctly as well as the name. The name is important, as it helps automating the rudiments.
