    Great book, very good for sight reading, interpretation, intonation, timing etc. And the etudes are very musical and melodic and fun to play.
    A book that one can enjoy for a long time. Recommended!!!

    Very fine book. It really got me hearing and dealing with the upper range of the bass. Etudes are very musical. They sound good at many different tempos and interps.

    It should be a part of your library.
     
  12. It really forces you to incorporate your entire fretboard in sight reading, helping you break out of the habit of relying on everything below D4
