Description

A collection of thirty extremely demanding “calisthenics” for bass, these exercises were collected from teachers, adapted from other instruments, or newly created over a period of twelve years. They are not tudes. They make no attempt to make melodies or music.

Because students have limited practice time, progress as quickly as possible by gleaning the most benefit from the precious time available. This is a compilation of exercises, each focusing on a particular technical challenge, distilling it to its essence.

The purpose of each exercise is stated clearly so players will know what skill they can expect to acquire. These 32 pages include two or three exercises each for tone, vibrato, left hand velocity, shifting, on-the-string bow strokes, off-the-string bow strokes, staccato, string crossing, and miscellaneous exercises.

    This book didn’t look so “torturous” until I started to read the fine print! It’s an effective collection of focused bass workouts – something for everybody. I feel like my practice time for the past few days has been very productive. The suggestions in the “vibrato” section were a big help to me. I’d really like to see a video demonstration of these techniques. Thanks for the great book and for your super service!
