okay Folks My teacher just switched me from the German Butler Bow to The French Bow. I am finding it is so much easier to play. For years, since my college days, I have been using the Simandle Book 1 to warm up with. especially the Scale exercises, bow exercises and arpeggios exercises. My last teacher had switch me over to the Nanny Books 1+2, but I had walked away from the DB for a couple of years to play Electric Bass. And I just bought myself a new DB to play in which I have been practicing the instrument for 2-3 hours a day with the Simandle Books. A did a little out of the Nanny's Books also. But now I am getting back to were I had played a few years ago, now my goal is to Master the Nanny Method, plus I am working on my Jazz BAss sTuff at the same time, I do everything with the bow also even my Jazz stuff. Now here is my question for anyone who have done the Nanny Method, how did you see your playing approve with it, and what was the best way to approach it? My teacher is very open to using the method as when so you know. He has been playing DB for over 55+ years, he is 81 years Old studied with the Masters of American Bass in his day.
