Reaching The Heights – Thumb Position on the Double Bass


ISBN-10: 1980232830
ISBN-13: 978-1980232834



Professor of Double Bass at the Trinity-Laban Conservatoire in London, Chris West, uses photographs, exercises, short tunes and excerpts to explain how to play at the higher end of the double bass. “I hope my book will be of interest to all players. I have included techniques shown to me by colleagues, but many of the ideas are things I have had to work out for myself so I hope that even experienced players will find something in the book they didn’t know, or hadn’t thought about before. However, most of all I hope the book will be used by young players who are just starting to play in thumb position so that they can have a solid technique right from the start. It is much harder to eliminate ingrained faults than to learn good habits in the first place. I believe that using this book allows students to develop their skills in an effective way”
