Much of a bassistís training involves using fingers 1, 2 and 4 up through F# on the G-string, then switching into Thumb Position at the octave G. Itís as if a line has been drawn in the sand. But what if we added a third area in between the Lower and the Thumb Positions? Itís the Thumb Transition Zone! Chris Kosky targets a very specific area of the neck, providing players with exercises and musical examples to improve accuracy and confidence, and lead to more fingering options. 35 pages, spiral bound.
