Double Bass Method Books

One of the great things about playing an instrument is that the learning never ends. The journey of a musician is about striving for self-improvement, and becoming more and more proficient over time. It's an exciting challenge, and a big one, so it's good to know you're not on your own. Whether you're picking up a bass for the first time or you're an experienced pro aiming to brush up on your technique to achieve a whole new level of excellence, there are double bass method books in this section ready to help you get the job done. Taking the first step on the next leg of your musical journey can be as simple as picking out your ideal resources right here. If you're a beginner, it makes sense to start out with double bass method books that teach you all the fundamental techniques and theory needed to get underway. The KJOS String Basics Book 1 for String Bass is a top-selling example, plus it comes as a series - so once you've mastered the first book, you can move on to KJOS String Basics Book 2 to pick up right where book 1 left off. Other method books, like the Alfred Learn to Play in the Orchestra Book 1 Bass, can also help you broaden your horizons by teaching you musicianship knowledge beyond the instrument itself. For intermediate, advanced and professional players, there are plenty of higher-level books here to choose from. Along with those, you'll also find a good assortment of repertoire books that are great to have in your collection regardless of your personal skill level. For instance, the Alfred Festive Strings Bass Book (and its sequel, the More Festive Strings Bass Book), are filled with classic holiday arrangements. So whether you want to expand your knowledge or simply your library of sheet music, you can find what you need in this section. Since music is such a personal pursuit, nobody can tell you which double bass method books are right for you - but since they're sorted by level and style, it will be easy for you to make that decision on your own! Just take your time and look over the options... and if you find yourself stuck, take a look at the best-rated and top-selling titles to get a sense for which ones are working out well for other musicians like you.
