Barry Bales has been among the most celebrated upright bassists in bluegrass and country music this past 20 years. He has multiple Grammy awards, plus trophies from the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Country Music Association. His bass is featured in recordings from Alison Krauss & Union Station where he is the full-time bass player, and in films like Walk The Line and O Brother, Where Art Thou.

In this two hour and 20 minute DVD, Barry shares his thoughts on the appropriate role of the bass, and demonstrates many of the techniques that have made him a first call musician in both bluegrass and country music. AcuTab's John Lawless leads Barry through a discussion of his background and influences before they move on to songs. Barry also covers important topics like tone production, walking bass, percussive 'ghost' notes, and more. 2 hours 20 minutes.

MY FIRST SIMANDL: FOR THE DEVELOPING DOUBLE-BASS STUDENT

No reviews

My First Simandl preserves the original intent and musical/educational objectives that Franz Simandl set forth in his etude books New Method for the Double Bass, Vol. 1 and Thirty Etudes for the String Bass. Many of the exercises are exactly as they are in the original books. However, there are areas where the studies started at a level of difficulty, which made it unrealistic for use by young players. Consequently, some of the etudes in My First Simandl have been shortened in length or have had note values doubled. The studies have been arranged in progressive order, taking into account tonality, grade of difficulty and style. Rosen and Eckfeld have chosen studies that are considered to be the most important for student at the earlier stages of technical development. Included are duet exercises for the student and teacher – a proven approach to better learning!
