Abracadabra Double Bass is a tutor which takes the beginner from the earliest stages and beyond. Comprehensive course in 20 learning steps. 91 popular songs & tunes, from Disney themes to classical & traditional favourites. Duet accompaniments, trios & rounds throughout. Can be used alongside the companion tutors for Violin, Viola & Cello. Playalong CD included. The Abracadabra Strings team have already created a highly successful series; now two more consultants have added their expertise to make a first-class tutor for double bass. Teachers and students alike will be delighted with this collection of well known tunes which includes many duets and trios as well as solo pieces. Of particular interest to teachers wil be the tie-in with Abracadabra Violin, Viola and Cello; the Double Bass book contains all the same pieces in all the same keys, enabling students of the different instruments to make music together from lesson 1. The CD contains performances of each item played on Double Bass, accompanied by the Piano (the written music can be found in Abracadabra Strings Piano Accompaniments). The Double Bass and Piano are recorded on separate channels; if CD machines have this facility, students can turn down either channel to listen to each instrument on its own.
