Anyone have this and know anything about it. http://www.schott-music.com/shop/1/show,227173.html
I bought it last summer. Wolf discusses many topics in a very interesting manner. Lots of practical solutions .
I highly reccomend it. It is in German and english side by side so the length is a bit misleading.
M. Wolf recommends a lot of things not matching with traditional technique, like different standing position or use of 4 fingers in half tone steps. I prefer the traditinal Simandl technique.
The longer I play and more I learn, the more I see that one method can't work for everything. Different perspectives open up the possibilities of advancing the instrument even further. I just ordered it, thanks for the observations Ludwig and G-force.
Hey, I though Michael Wolf was a smooth jazz pianist. Oh yeah, Wolff.
I don't think the alternative things he talks about (like using 4 fingers) are necessarily at odds with more traditional technique. His bottom line is to play musicially, in tune, and with a beautiful bass sound.
I'm trying to develop his standing behind the bass posture and having difficulty getting the hang of the balance. Does his book cover this sufficiently?
