I have a 35" scale EUB
If you want to use an URB fingering method, yes (assuming the method book to which you refer is for URB). There are ebass players who use modified Simandl fingerings on their fretted and fretless electric basses, often because they come from URB.
If you intend to eventually pursue a "full size" EUB, then it would be wise to learn this method now.
The whole Gary Vance series is really helpful, or it is too me at least. The pieces they have in there to work on your technique are pretty challenging. The Nanny concerto is in the back of book three, as well as the Keyper Romance and Rondo, both of which are challenging and cool sounding pieces.
Just my .02
Does anyone have an opinion on these DVD's? I'm an electric bassist who is jumping into EUB.

Peter, did you mean George Vance? Just double checking since I have Simandl but wanted something more melodic. Thanks
