Product Overview

Enjoy the Double Bass, Vol 1 & 2
Double Bass Method with Piano Accompaniment Book/CD

This method for learning upright bass has some similarities to the Simandl exercises, but has some guidance for self-learners (the Simandl book has exercises only.) This book, unlike our popular "Essential Elements" set, assumes that you already know the basics of reading music. If you're taking your bass studies seriously, and want to learn proper technique (including arco) this set of two comprehensive books with CDs could be your ticket.

The first book covers half position up to 2.5 position; the second picks up where the first left off and takes you up to fifth position. Both books are chock full of illustrations and photos. Book one is 120 pages, while book two is 92 pages - so this is no thin "elementary method" book - you'll get a lot of time and use out of this set!

Additionally, each of the two books includes a CD which contains performances, piano accompaniments, and printable PDF scores for many of the exercises in the book.

Note: The arco notes and illustrations in this set refer to the German/Butler style bow. The exercises are, of course, compatible with either bow and grip style.


 

Enjoy the Double Bass, Vol 3 & 4
Double Bass Method with Piano Accompaniment Book/CD

This method for learning upright bass has some similarities to the Simandl exercises, but has some (minimal) guidance for self-learners (the Simandl book has exercises only.) This book, unlike our popular "Essential Elements" set, assumes that you already know the basics of reading music. If you're taking your bass studies seriously, and want to learn proper technique (including arco) this set of two comprehensive books with CDs could be your ticket.

Book 3 covers 5½ position up to 7th position; the final book of the series is a huge volume that is all about thumb position. Both books are chock full of illustrations and photos. Book three is 92 pages, while book four is *175* pages - so this is no thin "elementary method" book - you'll get a lot of time and use out of this set!

Additionally, each of the two books includes a CD which contains performances, piano accompaniments, and printable PDF scores for many of the exercises in the book.

Note: The arco notes and illustrations in this set refer to the German/Butler style bow. The exercises are, of course, compatible with either bow and grip style.
