Bill Scott (composer)


  • Double Bass


A good, daily warm-up routine is as valuable for musicians as it is for athletes with benefits beyond simply stretching muscles and getting the fingers, hands and arms nimble. With Power Warm-up, bassists can warm their muscles and ease into a practice regimen while working on seven fundamental areas of technique each day. This program is easily memorized, can be completed in 15 minutes and is designed to offer variety on a daily basis.
