Schlink: Kontrabass! Heft 2
Eine Schule fuer Kinder und Jugendliche
Piano settings by Thomas Blomenkamp
Illustrations by Dorothea Lindenberg
We didn’t want to let all those enthusiastic double-bass students wait too long for the second book of “Kontrabass!” – so here it is! In Book 2 we progress from the first position up and beyond the half, second and third positions to reach the second high position. Shifting is also obviously treated in detail. New bowing techniques such as spiccato and col legno are on the program, as well as typical double-bass parts from orchestral works of famous composers and information concerning the instrument. This runs like a red thread through every chapter. In addition, students can indulge in jazz bass playing through their first jazz standards.
