This bilingual volume in German and English is devoted to introducing higher positions, up to and including the third position. As an aid to orientation, all position changes are marked with lines. Climbing games and slippery glissandos help learners to develop a playful attitude toward their instrument. Recurring melodies in different positions are used to combine new course contents with existing skills. This ensures that students develop confidence by retaining control of intonation in simple transpositions.
The varied songs and melodies are now complemented by easy pieces for two basses, including several duets specially composed for this tutor by Boguslaw Furtok to encourage fun in music-making and to pave the way to ensemble playing.
