Starting in first position, and proceeding carefully through the higher positions, half and thumb positions, this method book uses studies and exercises to demonstrate specific technical ideas.
This popular collection of classical solos for double bass and piano, edited by Oscar Zimmerman, now includes an enhanced accompaniment CD option. In addition to providing piano accompaniments to play along with, it can also be used on a PC/MAC to adjust the tempo to the player's preference.
