Mastering the Bow for Double Bass: Spiccato Edition

Mastering the Bow, Part 2: Spiccato (BF113 – Score – $19.99) defines, examines, and elaborates on each type and variety of spiccato bow-strokes. Collections of etudes have been carefully selected and presented from the methods of Dotzauer, Kreutzer, Lee, Popper, Bille, Slama, Simandl, Bottesini, Palschko, and Milde. Guidelines are provided for studies, as well as extensive instruction on all aspects of spiccato playing. The book begins with quotes from famous pedagogues Ivan Galamian and Simon Fischer on bass bow technique.

Jeffrey Weisner, bassist in the National Symphony Orchestra, says, “For too long, spiccato and other off-the-string bowing techniques have lacked a systematic treatment for double bass in a single, easy-to-use volume. At last, Gaelen McCormick offers a remedy in this clear, practical book of exercises, instruction, and practical advice drawing on the principles of master string pedagogues.”
