Mastering the Bow, Part 3

New York, NY – Carl Fischer Music announces the release of Mastering the Bow, Part 3: Studies for Bass (BF117 – Score – $14.99), edited and arranged by Gaelen McCormick.

Gaelen McCormick’s third installment of Mastering the Bow provides bass students and performers a comprehensive review of bow strokes. Adapted from Otakar Ševčík’s Op. 3 for violin, McCormick challenges bassists to carefully examine the way their bow interacts with the string across the core set of bow strokes; Détaché, Martelé, Brush, Spiccato, Sautillé, and Ricochet. David Allen Moore of the USC Thornton School of Music and the Los Angeles Philharmonic touts this edition as a “…vital step in bringing our available resources in line with those that upper string players have enjoyed for years and an essential part of any aspiring bassist’s library!”

Mastering the Bow, Part 3: Studies for Bass is available now through Carl Fischer Music, or your favorite music retailer.
