MASTERING THE BOW PART 1
The goal of this book is to help Bassists expand their tonal vocabularies; to learn to make a wide variety of colors and shapes with music. The left hand makes no sound; it is the bow that creates articulations, rhythms, and rises and falls within a phrase. Using the famous Franz Wolfahrt Studies for Violin as the basis, Gaelen McCormick has selected and edited these etudes to teach and reinforce bowing techniques for the Bass. It is a never before seen collection that will greatly enhance the pedagogical repertoire for the instruction of the Bass. All Bassists should have this as part of their study materials. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 47 pages. Our Price: US$14.99
