I picked up the Art Davis Method for Double Bass at the library shortly after getting my URB. Haven't actually spent much time with it, but have noted that it employs a totally different fingering system than anyone here is talking about. His system is all four fingers one finger per half step, even down in the lower positions. I'm curious if anyone on the boards knows this book or has an opion on it. Before I get the expected response... "get a teacher and the Simandl", I've got the later if not the former and am making great progress with the traditional method despite the lack of teacher. But the four fingers is too easy to slip into if I play anywhere above the 4th position. I have large hands and years of guitar and EB experience that makes this fingering technique very natural. Basically though, I'm just curious if any one knows of the Art Davis method at all.
