: I am a bas teacher in Amsterdam Holland , and i'm looking for a good bas book that i can use in my lessons, especialy for my younger students
: If you are talking about electric bass I'd recommend Essential Bass Technique by Peter Murray (www.thermidormusic.com) for any age players who are just starting with the bass. It's not a theory or compostional method, more like just the basics of how to hold the instrument, right and left hand positions, etc. etc. I use it for my students that are just starting out then move onto the site reading and other materials. If you are talking double bass I would recommend The Evolving Bassist Millenium Edition by Rufus Reid published by Myriad Limited. This book is a combo between accomodating the instrument and playing some lines both pizz and arco. I thought it was much easier to understand than the Symandl book. Hope this helps. JDP
