David Barrett Admin's picture

Today's exercise is fairly simple, but is exactly the way you'll use your new-found power of nasal cavity control. Play the following bass line, one note per beat...

2 3 4 5+

Follow these steps:

1) Exhale before starting

2) Make sure your nose is closed

3) Play the 2, 3 and 4 draws being conscious that your nose remains closed

4) Open your nose for the 5+ (bring your bellybutton to your spine to help get rid of your air quickly)

5) Close your nose when the 2 draw comes back to repeat the lick
