23 graded pieces for unaccompanied double bass
23 short unaccompanied pieces for the beginner bassist composed by one of the leading composers writing for the double bass today. Lively, melodic and rhythmic these can be used to supplement other beginner repertoire, also covering a number of easy keys. The catchy titles are aimed at the younger bassist and the pieces can also be used for technical or sight-reading practice. Beginner scales and arpeggios are included.
