DOUBLE BASS SIMANDL PDF

In fact, I had him on the podcast not too long after the book was published to talk about his unique way of integrating multiple technical approaches to the double bass. At pages, this book in an encyclopedia on left hand approaches that may, upon first glance, seemingly contradict each other. However, Marcos blends tradition fingering, pivoting, four finger chromatic fingering, and thumb position into a stream of exercises, making me look at the bass in a different way. When I heard from my good friend Geoff Chalmers of Discover Double Bass that Marcos would be heading to England to film a course , I decided to work methodically through Tao of Bass, going through the various exercises and taking notes on my progress. I thought that it would be interesting to do this work on my own and then see how my perspective would change hearing directly from Marcos through this course.

When I heard from my good friend Geoff Chalmers of Discover Double Bass that Marcos would be heading to England to film a course , I decided to work methodically through Tao of Bass, going through the various exercises and taking notes on my progress.

I thought that it would be interesting to do this work on my own and then see how my perspective would change hearing directly from Marcos through this course. It totally rocks. In fact, I wrote a review of it this past fall detailing everything that was inside.

I recently caught up with Marcos to talk about the upcoming release of volume two of the series. There can be no one-size-fits-all in double bass playing. Marcos Machado I always find it interesting to see how authors of pedagogical works for the double bass frame their project. While each is important for historical value, many now rely on now obsolete concepts.

He later writes: The Tao of Bass rejects some of the rigid rules that have been present for years in some traditional double bass schools. For example, while traditional schools favor using only three fingers in the lower positions, the Tao of Bass suggests that double bassists should use all the left hand fingers equally, independently, in all positions. Each musician should identify his or her own fingering and bowing solutions.

It has been fascinating over my life to watch attitudes in fingering change. Like many or perhaps most of you, I was raised on the left hand approach outlined in the Simandl Method. I remember looking at the black and white photos in this book of my hero Gary Karr, trying to emulate his hand position. In Tao of Bass, he organizes a multitude of exercises into three basic categories. For each of these chapters, he groups the fingerings according to the starting finger.

Be creative, practicing these permutations in different positions, and modulating diatonically or chromatically. Remember that shorter, more frequent practice sessions are the most effective. What I do is page through one of the chapters until I find something that catches my eye. I work on that exercise very slowly, increasing the tempo gradually. I may stick with that exercise for a week, or I might add in another one as well.

Each day, I look to add a slightly new challenge. I think of it like learning a new word in a foreign language. I want to use it in different ways and find new permutations for it. That might be shifting. More Resources I love the Tao of Bass and use it every day. Of course, there are an abundance of resources out there for bassists of any level.
