This volume compliments available literature on thumb positions, and facilitates a step by step progression in double-stopping in the thumb position. Practising double-stops gives the cellist the following advantages: 1) The left hand gets a better feeling for the correct position. 2) Independence of the fingers on the left hand is improved. 3) The left hand and wrist are more confident and intonation improves. 4) Competence in double-stopping is indispensable for legato playing across the strings.
