Some pieces contain easy Flageolets. This volume offers a broad selection of classical masterpieces in easy arrangements.Volume 2 (easy to intermediate) contains pieces up to the 3rd position. As some new double bass tutors have a different approach in introducing position changes, volume 2 offers several pieces which reach the 2nd position, some pieces using only 1st and 3rd positions and some more difficult pieces which encompass all positions from half to third position. This volume consists of more original works.Volume 3 (intermediate) increases the repertoire up to the 6th position and requires a good control of the lower positions.
